GL TRADE, a supplier of electronic trading software, has appointed Sylvain Ngassa as Sales Director at GL TRADE London Northern Europe.
Ngassa joined GL TRADE London in 1999 following the acquisition of FL SOFTWARE, the original provider of its listed derivatives clearing software, ClearVision.
Ngassa has since supervised ClearVision. In 2003, he was promoted to GL TRADE’s London Deputy Sales Director responsible for spearheading the promotion of GL STREAM Order Management System (OMS) integrated trading solutions.
“It is the perfect time for GL TRADE London to appoint in this leading role a professional such as Sylvain who has a combined expertise of Listed Derivatives and Equities,” says Patrick Tessier, CEO of GL TRADE LNE. “Just as we bring to market a multi asset class OMS that covers a wide spectrum of businesses from UK equities market-making to Listed Derivatives agency. Given the constant pressure on banks and brokers’ margins, Sylvain’s mission will be to offer a competitive and proficient alternative OMS in a market where choice has been restricted for too long”.
In his new role, Ngassa will be supported by Simon Bennett, who is appointed Deputy Sales Director. Bennett joined GL TRADE London in November 2003, following the acquisition of MSTS by GL TRADE.
