Omgeo's Peter Tierney has been appointed to the newly-created position of global head, strategic services, at financial networking services firm Radianz.
The appointment sees Tierney join his former boss at Omgeo, Howard Edelstein, who took over from Doug Gilstrap as president and CEO of Radianz last year.
Edelstein was previously president and CEO of Thomson Financial ESG, which he founded and later merged with the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation's Tradesuite business to create Omgeo.
In his new role, Tierney will lead a team responsible for driving the development of Radianz's services. The vendor says it is developing new offerings that will evolve its current shared market infrastructure model to enable software vendors in the financial technology space to build a new generation of network-based services.
This latest announcement follows other high-profile appointments in newly-created roles as Radianz seeks a new strategic direction under Edelstein's leadership. In April Radianz named Richard Snape, a former president of SunGard Market Data Services, as general manager at its Extranet Business Unit (EBU) and in June appointed Robert Garzilli of Currenex to the newly-created position of managing director – Americas.
