I feel extremely fortunate and excited about this next phase in my career, as I do about Tradepoint’s prospects. It is gratifying to see big-name clients lining up in these early days, driven to us by this team’s known reputation for client satisfaction.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Today, trading technology firm Tradepoint Systems announced the talent acquisition of Shmuel Nadata, who takes on the role of Managing Partner. Nadata leaves a Product Management role at Thomson Reuters where he led the teams responsible for the development, testing and support of the foreign exchange-focused product Thomson Reuters Dealing Aggregator (TRDA) and the AthenaTrader multi-asset execution management system.
In true software start-up fashion, Mr. Nadata will wear multiple hats in his new role, from managing client relationships and contributing to product strategy, to hands-on coding of market data and trading adapters. A die-hard writer and literary junkie, he will also be a regular contributor to the corporate blog (http://www.trdpnt.com/blog), where he recently posted a first article discussing the components of latency measurement for real-time trading systems.
Nadata joins the Tradepoint partners – Eric Adelman, Bill Adelman and Joey Horowitz – comfortably familiar with the management styles and business goals of each. On his colleagues, Nadata remarked, “We first worked together at Aegisoft to build a profitable small company, and then later, at Thomson Reuters, to build a scalable global business. This is a superlatively talented group, with a singular focus on delivering client-centric results. I feel extremely fortunate and excited about this next phase in my career, as I do about Tradepoint’s prospects. It is gratifying to see big-name clients lining up in these early days, driven to us by this team’s known reputation for client satisfaction. I also feel a tremendous sense of responsibility and renewed positivity: I am confident we will deliver excellent results for these early partners in our business.”
President and CEO Eric Adelman remarked, “We’ve sought Shmuel’s involvement from the start, so I am immensely pleased he has decided to jump on this fast-moving train with us. He brings unmatched technical expertise and financial market knowledge, as well as name recognition and a reputation in the industry for white-glove client service.”
Mr. Nadata holds a B.S. degree from Yale University in Computer Science and non-technical degrees from both Yale and Johns Hopkins University. He has held roles at Microsoft and Citibank, and he includes amongst his passions poker, competitive board game competitions, and, naturally, efficient messaging systems.
