State Street adds trio of electronic trading experts to Global Markets team

Highly-experienced electronic trading and execution experts join State Street’s Global Markets roster.

State Street Global Markets has made a series of moves to bolster its electronic trading sales team in the US, with two additions coming from Clearpool Group.

Dan Duffy joins the Boston headquartered firm as head of equity sales and trading for the Americas, leaving his role at Clearpool after seven years. He had most recently been head of execution services.

Duffy is an industry veteran, boasting 30 years of experience, and will report into Dan Morgan who leads the firm’s agency brokerage, outsourced trading and transition management businesses.

Also joining from Clearpool is Samantha Lippitt who will be responsible for buy-side engagement on electronic trading. Prior to Clearpool she had held roles at ITG and BTIG.

The final addition to the team is Mark Kepner, who joins State Street as an electronic product specialist. Mark has had execution trading and consulting roles with both Themis Trading and Instinet.
