Baton Systems, a provider of post-trade systems for capital markets, has appointed Aaron Ayusa as Director of Client Success.
In this role, he will work closely with customers to help solve FX-related issues and develop bespoke FX products. He will report directly to Baton’s Head of Business Development, Tucker Dona.
Based in New York, Aaron has over a decade of experience in the FX space, both in settlements and automation. Before joining Baton, Aaron spent ten years at Credit Suisse, where he was most recently AVP, Cash Products and Metrics Analysis, and oversaw various global FX initiatives and process improvements through robotics and technology. Prior to this, Aaron held roles as a senior analyst for prime swaps and senior analyst for FX operations. He has also represented Credit Suisse on various industry forums and working groups, including the FX Operations Managers Working Group (FX OMWG).
“Having Aaron’s knowledge and expertise in the FX space is critical to reinforcing Baton’s mission to reform how payments are made in the world’s largest financial markets,” said Dona. “As we continue to expand our client base, Aaron will be instrumental in supporting our customers and expanding our product offering.”
“The FX settlement process for banks has always been challenging, especially when settling FX transactions in real-time and across jurisdictions,” said Ayusa. “I’m excited to join Baton, which is leveraging distributed ledger technology to disrupt the FX settlement process in a more efficient manner, reducing risk and increasing visibility of funding sources and obligations to better manage liquidity.”
Baton recently expanded its leadership team to support its rapid growth in the FX space with the appointment of Jerome Kemp as Senior Advisor, and Philip Corryn as Director of Sales, North America.
