Previously Einfalt spent nearly seven years with Sun Trading, where he served as chief strategy officer, after which he founded his own strategic advisory consulting firm.
Mitchell, meanwhile, has been appointed regional sales executive, reporting to Scott Schroeder, managing director and global head of sales. He joins from G.H. Financials, where he has been regional sales executive, North America, since 2018. Prior to that he spent more than six years as business development manager for Chi-X Australia in Sydney after a role as regional manager, North America for the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in Chicago. Mitchell began his career in Sydney, in clearing and treasury roles at several banks, including Deutsche Bank and the Industrial Bank of Japan, as well as at Bloomberg as a global data analytics and corporate action specialist.
“We’re really excited to bring onboard these seasoned professionals as one of the first steps in our expansion plan, with more new hires to come as we accelerate our global growth,” says Schwab. “Eric brings rich experience from senior, hands-on roles in the industry we serve, along with business strategy acumen and extraordinary relationships. David’s tremendous background in a wide range of asset classes, understanding of our product and outstanding track record will enable us to build on the great progress we’ve made in North America over the past five years.”
