Nicola White has been named CEO of B2C2’s US entity, effective immediately. She replaces Rob Catalanello, who is leaving the firm.
White joined B2C2 in July 2021 as president of the US entity, from Citadel Securities, where she was global COO of fixed income. She joined Citadel from Morgan Stanley where she was global head of electronic markets.
“I’m delighted to be leading our US operations and look forward to working with the global team to build out B2C2’s already significant capabilities in electronic trading across spot and derivatives,” says White. “We will continue to create innovative solutions to meet the needs of our diverse, fast-growing institutional client base.”
Max Boonen, founder of B2C2, adds, “I have been impressed by Nicola since she joined B2C2 and congratulate her on the new role. She is smart, accomplished and driven – it’s a pleasure to work with her. I also want to thank Rob, who I hired personally three years ago, for the time spent together and for having helped grow our market share.”
Catalanello’s plans are not known at this stage, prior to B2C2 he worked in consulting/advisory roles having spent just over a year as global head of sales for Edgewater Markets. Prior to this he had a long banking career in FX at Credit Agricole, Goldman Sachs, Chemical Bank, and JP Morgan.
