Trading Apps are pleased to announce the appointment of Darren Johns as non-executive Director.
Darren joins Jean-Paul Musicco, Matthew Harrison and Jeff Lloyd onto the Board. Darren was most recently COO of Prime Brokerage at UBS. Prior to that he was COO of Securities Finance at Deutsche Bank. Since 2009 he has been building a portfolio of investments and non-executive roles.
Commenting on his new position, Darren said "I am excited to be joining this rapidly growing software firm. Trading Apps has a new approach to a market that has seen little variation in vendors or technology since Martini started in 1998. Rather than yet another inventory/trade processing offering, Trading Apps builds targeted applications for specific business issues which provide a tangible return on investment. As well as great technology, the company has great people from both the IT and business, which again is a unique approach. By combining Matthew Harrison, who founded Martini, with Roy Zimmerhansl, global industry expert, you have a powerful team of world class ideas generation and delivery capability."
Matthew Harrison, CEO, commented "We are delighted that Darren has decided to join us. Right from our first meeting, Darren saw the value in Trading Apps. As COO he had been frustrated by the lack of vendor technology which addressed business issues without having to change his entire platform at vast expense. And with budget pressures the availability of experienced in-house IT resources to work alongside business users to develop solutions was also very limited. The Trading Apps approach solves both these issues by providing easy to install applications solving specific business issues drawing information from whatever platform you currently have. Darren brings a wealth of knowledge about the market as well as practical experience on running a global business."
