New York-based Investment Technology Group (ITG) has appointed Mike Roberts, former managing director of SunGard Trading Systems, as head of its European operations for the Macgregor product line.
Prior to joining Macgregor, Roberts spent 14 years at SunGard, both across Europe and Asia. His most recent position was MD of SunGard's trading systems business in London.
Roberts began his financial services career at EF Hutton in Germany. Previous roles include sales trading at Lehman Brothers and consultancy at DG Bank.
ITG - which provides technology-based equity trading services - acquired Boston order management technology firm Macgregor in January this year. The Macgregor business is now part of the ITG Solutions Network.
In his new role Roberts will build a team in London to develop the Macgregor business across Europe. He will report directly to Stephen Alepa, ITG managing director and global head of sales and services at ITG Solutions Network.
