Jeromee Johnson has been appointed president of 3D Markets, Inc.
Previously, Mr. Johnson served as a senior analyst and consultant at the financial markets research and advisory firm, TABB Group.
"Jeromee Johnson is a recognized industry expert on the topics of market structure, electronic trading and trading technology infrastructure. We are thrilled that he now brings his proven ability at building teams, products and companies to 3D Markets," said David Mortimer, CEO of 3D Markets.
The mission of 3D Markets, Mortimer explained, is to bring smart liquidity to institutional customers in a safe and efficient manner using innovative and cost-effective new auction methodologies and protocols. "3D Markets is focused on serving large asset management companies and hedge funds that generate substantial daily trading volumes. 3D technology will enable them to both lower trade implementation costs and to increase their investment returns," he added.
Speaking to 3D investors in a recent private session, Johnson said, "Today's derivatives market is rapidly evolving from being driven by quotes to a more automated and order driven model. This dramatically reduces the ability and willingness of firms to display large-sized orders. 3D's execution venues provide unique mechanisms to make that liquidity available while protecting the clients' confidential order information. 3D's Archangel Options System provides a simple and elegant solution to that problem."
Johnson joins 3D Markets from TABB Group, where he advised capital markets participants and their providers on technology and strategy issues.
Earlier in his career, he served as director of product development and professional services at electronic trading agency broker dealer UNX. At UNX, he was a member of the company's Executive Committee and built and managed product, project management, and technical sales teams.
Johnson has headed his own financial services technical consulting company, and served as the senior technical solutions engineer for Javelin Technologies, director of engineering for Goinvest.com and vice president of operations and technology at Daylight Trading. He began his career in the financial services industry with Morgan Stanley.
A frequent presenter at industry events and conferences, Johnson has spoken on areas ranging from equity research and the unbundling of commissions, to efficient regulation of capital markets, to buy-side desktop trading platforms. He has appeared on Reuters and Bloomberg television and been quoted widely in The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Forbes and Financial Times as well as brokerage industry trade media including Institutional Investor, Traders, Securities Industry News, Waters and Wall Street & Technology.
