Liquidnet, the buy-side focused block-trading venue, has announced the appointment of Scott Harrison as its new global head of product in New York.
Prior to joining Liquidnet, Harrison was CEO of trading solutions provider UNX, where he was key to the development of its broker-neutral execution management system Catalyst. He has also worked in a variety of senior management positions at agency broker and trading technology vendor ITG over a 13-year period, including as the firm's director of global trading products and director of products management for equity trading tools.
Harrison will report to Seth Merrin, founder and CEO of Liquidnet.
“Over the last 10 years, Liquidnet created an electronic institutional marketplace where there once was none, then we took that marketplace global. Now we are building solutions for our members that will change the way they work, add value in ways that until now were not possible, and create new opportunities for enhancing their firms performance,” said Merrin.
“I am thrilled to be able to join this talented group and have this incredible global platform to create and deliver the kinds of trading solutions that our member community expects from Liquidnet,” added Harrison.
