NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) November 10, 2016
Cürex Group—an institutional foreign exchange execution services and data analytics company—announced today that Ron Papka has been named a Managing Director focusing on the development of data analytics and trading tools.
Mr. Papka has spent over 25 years creating analytical tools across capital markets asset classes. Most recently, as Director, Global Markets Technology for Citigroup, he was Global Head of Citi Velocity Analytics and Data Services. He has previously worked for various firms, including Barclays Capital, Lehman Brothers, and BlackRock, where he built risk solutions and trading systems software for those companies and their clients. Ron received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Massachusetts and his Masters in computer science from Brown University.
Commenting on Mr. Papka’s hire, Jamie Singleton, Cürex Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Ron’s experience in building impactful data analytics and working with customers to help build market relevant products goes hand-in-hand with Cürex’s commitment to help our buy side customers achieve best execution outcomes for their FX trading activities. We expect Ron to lead our effort to build the next generation of pre- and post-trade tools that directly address our customers’ needs.”
Mr. Papka added, “I am thrilled to join the Cürex team. Cürex has built a solid foundation of data analysis using their unique access to executable market prices. The buy side needs more and better tools to manage risk and help them achieve better trading outcomes. Increased regulatory demands will only make the analytics we build that much more important to the buy side. I look forward to using my experience to help Cürex’s clients make better trading decisions through the use of intelligent and efficient analytics.”
