OTAS Technologies, a supplier of decision support technology to institutional investment firms, has hired Jennifer Martyn as part of the ongoing expansion of the firm’s US sales team.
Martyn – who will be responsible for new business sales – previously worked in Thomson Reuters’ pan-European equity research division and spent six years building up the European sales office of StarMine a provider of analyst performance measurement and earnings quality evaluation. Martyn began her career as an equity sales trader based in Miami, London and the Czech Republic.
The cloud-based OTAS platform provides traders and portfolio managers with intra-day data and analytics to improve the investment process and alerts traders to hidden risks and opportunities in their portfolio or watch list. It can be integrated into order, execution and portfolio management systems.
Reporting to Nick Lieder, appointed head of US sales earlier this year, Martyn will work alongside OTAS Technologies’ expanding North American global product specialist team, including Courtenay Kane and Noah Levin. Kane joined OTAS in 2013 with several years’ experience as an equity sales trader, while Levin was a product specialist in derivatives technology prior to joining the OTAS team in January.
“Jennifer’s expertise and industry experience will bring a new dimension to the US team and its sales efforts. Her dynamic and client-centric approach to the fintech sales process has proven in the past to be a great recipe for success,” said Lieder.
The firm also recently hired Alex Wild and Cantonese and Mandarin speaker Kim Zhang, who join the global product specialist team in London and Hong Kong, respectively.
