BidFX Systems, a division of TradingScreen (TS), is opening offices in Italy and Australia, with new hires heading each location.
Carlo Scotto will run the Italian office, which will be based in Milan. He joins from Refinitiv, where he was responsible for sales and business development in Southern Europe for FXall. Scotto has also worked as a technology and data sales manager at SuperDerivatives, which is owned by the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), and as a capital markets manager for Accenture.
In Australia, the office will be operating out of Sydney and will be run by David Catterick, who joins from ITG, where he was working in sales within the APAC region. Prior to joining ITG in 2015, Catterick actually spent over three years at TS, working in sales. He also spent four years at JP Morgan and spent stints at Credit Suisse, IBM, AAPT, Capital International and Thomson Reuters.
“The appointment of two strategic hires to drive business from our new offices in Milan and Sydney gives us an unrivalled local presence on the ground with operations close to our institutional clients in the region,” says Jean-Philippe Male, CEO.
He adds: “BidFX intends to create a competitive advantage and long-term growth through investing in more regions to follow our commitment to clients. It aims to become a leading FX trading and workflow solution in the eFX space globally.”
