Kieran Fitzpatrick has announced he is stepping down as CEO of Barracuda FX, a firm he helped found in late 2008.
Barracuda was established as an FX order management system (OMS) provider and built a loyal following amongst banks globally, as witnessed by its repeated winning of the OMS category in Profit & Loss’ Readers’ Choice Awards, before expanding into pricing and distribution technology. It was bought by Broadway Technologies in 2019, Broadway was then further swallowed by up giant Ion Group in 2020.
Fitzpatrick co-founded the firm after leaving Cognotec, where he worked for almost 10 years, most latterly as head of strategic solutions. In a post on social media, Fitzpatrick says that after 30 years of developing FX technology, he is taking some time off to consider new opportunities.
