Trading Technologies names former Broadridge exec Justin Llewellyn-Jones as new COO
Trading Technologies, a US-based provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for capital markets firms, has bolstered its senior management team with the appointment of Justin Llewellyn-Jones as chief operating officer (COO), effective 1 January.
Llewellyn-Jones brings almost three decades of experience in fintech and financial services to his new role. His move to Trading Technologies follows a four-year stint at Broadridge, where he served as head of capital markets, North America (equities, FX and derivatives) before also taking on the role of chief product officer, capital markets in January 2022.
Having started his career at UK banking giant NatWest, he spent six years at ADP before moving to Fidessa, a provider of trading and investment solutions for financial firms, in 2005. During his 14-year tenure at the company, he served as global head of derivatives for more than six years and COO Americas for more than eight years.
Prior to his switch to Broadridge, he was made global head of derivatives for ION after the company pipped banking tech vendor Temenos to the acquisition of Fidessa in 2018 in a deal worth around £1.5 billion.
In his new role, Trading Technologies says Llewellyn-Jones will “lead all of the firm’s market-facing business to drive its multi-asset growth”.
Trading Technologies’ CEO, Keith Todd, says the company has been “steadily fortifying our leadership team” as it looks to ensure it has “all the building blocks in place to achieve our ambitious goals”.
