Kepler’s Byron Griffin to join ODDO BHF

Griffin’s departure from Kepler Cheuvreux was announced last month.

Former head of market structure and liquidity solutions at broker dealer Kepler Cheuvreux Byron Griffin is set to join Franco-German financial services firm ODDO BHF, The TRADE can reveal.

He joins as head of execution sales and microstructure.

Griffin left Kepler in May after over eight years with the broker dealer. He is currently on gardening leave set to join ODDO in the coming months, The TRADE understands.

“I’m really looking forward to joining the team at ODDO BHF and continuing to build a best-in-class execution business,” Griffin told The TRADE.

Griffin originally joined Kepler in 2016 as its head of portfolio and electronic sales trading, later assuming his most recent role as head of market structure and liquidity solutions in 2022.

He has an extensive trading career, joining the industry in 1999 as a product controller at Credit Suisse before moving into a series of arbitrage trading roles at Stafford Trading Europe and Nomura Securities.

He later took on a role as a director of execution sales trading at Barclays Capital in 2004, going on to serve in a similar capacity at Curzon Securities and as head of equities and transaction products at Thomson Reuters before joining Kepler.
