It looks like it could be one in and one out at EBS
BrokerTec. A mere couple of weeks after it hired Mark
Bucaj as product director, well-placed sources say that EBS BrokerTec has
now lost Mark ‘Speedo’ Bruce, whose title was head of product.
The well-regarded Bruce was a professional triathlete in his
younger days. But rather than swimming, running or cycling away from EBS, which
he joined as a graduate trainee in 2009, sources say he has ‘jumped’. This may
or may not be a pun on his next destination – Bruce is believed to be off to
join an algorithmic trading operation.
EBS has declined to comment on Bruce’s departure and at the time
of writing, Bruce also did not return calls.
