Sterling Trading Tech names new president and CEO

Incoming chief executive brings considerable experience to the firm, having previously served at Vela Trading Systems, NYSE and REDI Global Technologies.

Sterling Trading Tech has appointed Jennifer Nayar as its new president and chief executive officer.

She joins the firm from Vela Trading Systems, where she served as chief executive for six and a half years.

Prior to that, Nayar was technology chief of staff at REDI Global Technologies and before that, served as senior vice president, global market data at NYSE.

Previously in her career, Nayar held senior product management positions at NYFIX (now part of Broadridge Trading and Connectivity Solutions), Omgeo and Thomson ESG.

“I am thrilled to share that I have joined Sterling Trading Tech as its new President and CEO,” said Nayar in a post announcing her appointment.

“A little under a year ago, when I was contemplating my next move after leaving my role as CEO of Vela Trading Systems, I knew that I didn’t want to settle for just any opportunity. I wanted to work for a company with high-performance, battle-tested technology, a unique approach and a talented team. I also wanted to challenge myself and lend my experience to a firm at a key inflection point in its growth. I am pleased to say that my new role at STT checks every box.”
