Kooltra, a provider of cloud-based, integrated middle and back office technology for FX markets, has appointed James “Jay” Green as chief executive officer.
Green succeeds founder Adam Katz, who will become chief product officer and lead Kooltra’s product strategy, engineering and product development teams.
Prior to joining Kooltra, Green worked in a consultancy role having left US Bank where he was head of FX trading in 2015. Prior to that, he had worked in e-FX sales for Morgan Stanley, Saudi Arabia-based Jadwa Investments and Integral Development. He has also worked in FX roles at BP, Citi and Societe Generale.
“Kooltra is transforming the way FX brokers execute trades,” says Green. “I look forward to building on the success to date and helping to drive even more efficient FX workflows by introducing comprehensive and integrative technology across the industry.”
Katz adds, “Our mission at Kooltra is to enable all FX market participants – from brokers to banks – gain access to enterprise-grade technology. Jay’s deep capital markets experience positions us well to achieve this goal and deliver on Kooltra’s vision to streamline post-trade FX and payment operations for all types and sizes of institutions.”
