UK trading technology vendor royalblue has appointed Matthew Paré and Lesley Laws to its Fidessa sales team.
Paré joins royalblue from EasyBroker, an institutional sell-side firm where he was head of product development, specialising in direct market access (DMA) connectivity, client front-end systems and technical and quantitative research development.
In his new role, Paré will focus on driving sales of royalblue's Fidessa product to both buy- and sell-side firms in continental Europe.
Laws previously worked for Telerate, holding a number of positions including sales and marketing manager for the UK regional business during her 12 year tenure.
She will join the new business team at royalblue and focus on sales of the Fidessa Workstation platform in the UK market.
Internally the firm has promoted Angie Walker to director of new business sales UK, and Ian Cox becomes director of Fidessa house accounts, UK, in a move that splits responsibility for sales to new business and existing accounts.
