UK trading technology vendor EasyScreen has promoted Alexander Lamb to the new board position of chief operating officer.
Lamb, 47, joined the company in July 2004 as head of product management and technical sales.
Prior to joining EasyScreen, Lamb spent 27 years in the finance sector and has managed business development for Liffe and has developed derivatives trading technology for institutions such as Midland Bank, Nomura International and Dresdner Bank.
Lamb's specialisation is electronic trading technology and he developed Fimat's (a SG Group company) business in Frankfurt and was instrumental in establishing Eurex in the US before joining Trading Technologies in 1997 as marketing and business development director. In 2001 Lamb joined SmartStream Technologies as marketing director. Most recently he was director of software development at Goldenberg, Hehmeyer and Co - which last month settled a software patent dispute with Lamb's former employers at TT.
In his new role, Lamb will be responsible for the executive direction of EasyScreen's operations worldwide. Philip Docker will remain as executive chairman of EasyScreen, focusing on growing sales in the US.
Peter Scott Hodgson, former chief executive who resigned from the company in July, was brought back in to carry out restructuring, which is now complete.
