Tradeware Systems Corp., a privately-owned provider of Financial Information eXchange (FIX)-based electronic order management systems and direct market access trading connectivity solutions, today announced that Peter B. Hull has been named the Company's director of technology.
He will oversee Tradeware's Product Development, Product Management and Quality Assurance groups.
Prior to joining Tradeware, Hull worked for 11 years at European commercial bank WestLB AG, most recently as director of electronic commerce. In that role, he spearheaded the conception and delivery of cross-asset class electronic trading, research and information portal products. He also served as WestLB's chief technology officer for North America, managing a staff of up to 40 professionals responsible for software development and infrastructure management. From 1986 to 1993, Hull, 48, worked at The First Boston Corporation in a variety of senior positions, including vice president of fixed income trading technologies.
"Throughout his career, Peter has demonstrated his ability to carry a project from idea to implementation, and that track record of success made him stand out," said Kerry Smithers, Tradeware's chief executive officer and chief technology officer, who co-founded the Company in 1993. "We expect Peter's international project experience, particularly in the area of foreign exchange, to be a key attribute as we continue to build out our domestic Tradeware and new Tradeware Global U.K. products and services."
"Tradeware is to securities trading technology what Cisco Systems is to networking," Hull said. "It is especially exciting to join a company that has remained at the leading edge of FIX technology since the protocol was introduced to the equity industry in the early 1990s. Kerry has put together a dynamic team, and I look forward to contributing as the Company builds its international presence."
