NYFIX, a provider of electronic trading solutions, has appointed Scott Bloom to the newly-created position of executive vice president, corporate development and chief administrative officer. In this new role, Bloom is responsible for the NYFIX legal department, as well as corporate development activities and people practices.
“I am very pleased to have Scott on board at NYFIX,” says Howard Edelstein, CEO at NYFIX. “As we move forward to scale our business in 2007 and beyond, the growth and development of our people remains one of our highest corporate priorities. Scott’s proven abilities in the legal and corporate development areas, together with his background in people practices and finance, make him an extremely valuable addition to the NYFIX team.”
Before joining NYFIX, Bloom was executive vice president of corporate development and human resources and general counsel at Dictaphone Corporation, where he served on the company’s three-person senior leadership team that had strategic and operational accountability for all aspects of the business. Before that, he was a director, finance, at AT&T, where he developed and led operational improvement teams. Bloom began his professional career in 1991 as an attorney at Kelley Drye & Warren. He holds an MBA in Finance from The Wharton School and a JD from William & Mary.
“NYFIX has an impressive history of innovation, a broad and deep product offering, and strong relationships with its clients,” says Bloom. “I am greatly looking forward to working with Howard and the dynamic leadership team he has assembled as together we seek to take the business to the next level.”
In January, NYFIX announced the appointment of four new senior management executives: Brennan Carley, David Merrill, Robert Moitoso and Chris Walsh. Bloom now joins this newly-expanded NYFIX leadership team, which has been charged with building out the company’s existing footprint within the global financial markets.
