TradingScreen, Inc., the leading global provider of multi-broker, multi-asset class trading systems, today announced the appointment of Jonathan Jenkins to lead the firm's expansion into Switzerland. Jenkins will relocate from London, where he has been based for the past eight years, to TradingScreen's recently opened Geneva office.
A longstanding employee of TradingScreen, Jenkins for the past three years has held a technical sales role within the firm, leading business development for Switzerland and central European nations. Prior to this he served as a Senior Connectivity Development manager. Jenkins has also led the development of TradingScreen's proprietary FIX gateway product, TradeFIX, which ultimately enabled a combination of traditional asset managers and larger alternative asset managers to benefit from TradingScreen's expansive reach of multi broker sell-side connectivity.
Prior to joining TradingScreen, Jenkins spent five years at Credit Suisse as head of Equity Prime Brokerage Technology in New York and London. He holds an MSc in Microelectronics from Kings College, London University.
"I am very excited to be leading TradingScreen's expansion into the centre of Europe. I intend to continue to build on our success in Switzerland and Central Europe by providing the financial community with TradingScreen's buy-side trading platform, as well as fully integrating with local clearing firms," Jonathan Jenkins said. "With my extensive experience at TradingScreen and broad technical background, I will ensure the delivery of the best solution for our clients. I look forward to working closely with local financial firms and technology providers."
