Edgewater Markets has continued its recent raft of senior hires with the appointment of Robert Catalanello as its new global head of sales.
Based in Edgewater’s New York headquarters, Catalanello will be responsible for managing the company’s sales team, as well as client growth and distribution globally. He will report directly to Skovran Schreder, co-founder and CEO.
Catalanello joins the firm after a decade with Credit Agricole, where he headed global market sales for the Americas. Prior to that, he had stints in the global sales and trading businesses at Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.
“Robert knows the FX space inside and out and has successfully built several businesses from scratch. We are very excited to have Robert accelerate and manage our client growth strategy, globally and across all segments,” says Edgewater co-founder, Alex Scarsini. “Robert will be part of the management team and will be involved in strategic decision planning across all business lines as they pertain to sales and client growth.”
In March, Edgewater announced a $30M growth equity investment from FTV Capital.
Last week, Edgewater also announced the launch of a local matching engine in Mexico City as part of its broader Latin American growth strategy.
