Futures technology provider, FIA Tech has named former Citi director of FX prime brokerage product strategy Gily Gazit to the newly created role of head of product.
At Citi Gazit led and managed the entire tech stack of the FXPB global business, from front office products to middle office and key vendor products. “We are delighted to welcome Gily to FIA Tech,” says Yossi Leon, chief technology officer at FIA Tech. “Gily will work with FIA Tech’s customers, product advisory committees, partners and internal teams to define the global roadmap across all products. Leading the product requirements processes and directing the roll-out of new services and capabilities, Gily will be driving innovation for our user community of over 8,000 firms trading and clearing exchange traded derivatives.”
Prior to Citigroup, Gazit led the rollout and support of multiple post-trade and risk solutions over a 15-year career at Traiana (now Osttra). In her roles there, she contributed to the adoption and growth of both the sell side and buy side post-trade networks in multiple asset classes.
Meanwhile, FIA Tech has launched a new client services and operations centre in Tampa, Florida. FIA Tech’s client services team is the primary interface for the firm’s client base and is responsible for the onboarding of new clients, overall client satisfaction and implementation of initiatives across its various business lines.
“Tampa is a strong centre for financial technology operations and client services teams, supported by its proximity to large financial institutions. We have seen strong recruitment interest from highly qualified professionals either based in or looking to relocate to Tampa and we will continue to hire in the region,” says Nick Solinger, CEO of FIA Tech. “Long before the pandemic, FIA Tech was committed to diversity of office locations and flexible work from home arrangements to attract and retain top talent globally.”
