Redi today announced several key additions to its leadership team. With the company recently reaching its second anniversary and transitioning from startup to expansion phase, these changes reflect Redi’s evolving needs and better position it for growth moving forward.
To facilitate this evolution, REDI has both brought in experienced institutional brokerage and fintech industry veterans, as well as promoted several talented individuals from within. In addition, REDI has restructured its client and business operations groups globally to help further its mission to provide superior service along with a world-class product that spans the trade lifecycle.
"As our business continues to grow, it is important that our leadership team and organizational structure evolves as well to allow us to not only meet the lofty standards our clients have come to expect, but also foster and develop our talented employee base," said CEO Rishi Nangalia. "Our business is building real momentum, and with these moves I firmly believe that its pace will accelerate as we’re able to run our firm more efficiently and service our clients more effectively.”
