Mike Thorpe, former head of sales Europe at TradeWeb has joined Mosaic Smart Data, which offers data analytics technology for the FICC markets, as head of sales.
In this role Thorpe will be tasked with growing the company’s client base among large financial institutions and supporting existing clients in on-boarding additional features and asset classes to Mosaic’s analytics platform, MSX.
Thorpe joins Mosaic after 14 years at Tradeweb where he had been the head of European sales since 2014. While at Tradeweb, he was responsible for senior buy side client relationships, as well as managing the sales functions and teams across its European operation. Prior to this, Thorpe was head of UK sales at MarketAxess for over three years, and spent 13 years in FX and fixed income sales at Citi and Merrill Lynch in both London and Sydney.
Thorpe comments: “Having worked with some of the world’s top financial services institutions, over the last few years, conversations have increasingly turned to the need for data analytics. It is now top of the agenda for firms across the markets, on the buy side and sell side. It is very exciting to be joining a company at the forefront of delivering this technology.”
Matthew Hodgson, CEO and founder of Mosaic Smart Data, says: “Mike has a wealth of specialised experience and an impeccable reputation across financial services. We are very pleased that he will be joining us as we embark on the next exciting steps of our journey.”
