Trading Technologies sales head Robbie McDonnell is to
return to Sydney to head up the firm’s Asia
business following a two year stint in Chicago.
McDonnell, an 18 year veteran of the firm, moved to Chicago
on a temporary basis in 2014 in the wake of the departures of
senior sales figures Tim Geannopulos and Guy Scott.
He had moved to Sydney in 2006 having joined the firm's
London office in 1998.
The move is part of a reorganisation of senior sales roles
at the Chicago-headquartered company that will create four
global senior sales roles reporting to CEO Rick Lane.
Brian Fox, EVP of commodities, will head-up sales for
Chicago and Houston while Guy Scott, who returned to the firm
in 2015, will run New York and South America.
Steve Stewart will continue in his role as managing director
Russell Toop, who has been with TT since 2003 and is
currently managing director of Singapore and Hong Kong, will
leave the firm.
In addition to the sales reorganisation, Trading
Technologies has promoted Kara Grygotis to head up a new
customer success team.
Grygotis joined the firm in May and the new division will
initially focus on the continuing migration of TT customers
onto the next generation trading platform.
Brian Mehta, chief marketing officer at TT, confirmed the
changes and said: "TT has put into place a new global customer
success organisation that will focus on account management,
ensuring seamless product on-boarding and day-to-day client
"The sales department will be led by futures industry
veterans across four regional heads of sales, focused on
business development and relationship management."
