FX swaps and NDF pricing data provider Digitec, has named Peer Joost as CEO. Previously Joost was COO of the firm, which he joined in 2011.
He replaces his father, Hans-Jürgen Joost, who was also a co-founder of the firm in 1981, who is retiring.
“I would like to formally recognise my father’s contribution to Digitec’s growth over the last 40 years,” says Joost. “As CEO, he led a team which successfully navigated the Scandinavian banking crisis, the dot-com bubble and global financial crises, reinventing our products and services to satisfy the changing needs of the market and firmly establishing Digitec as a pioneering software and data service company and global market leader for FX pricing solutions. I am delighted to take over as CEO as we begin a new phase of growth, which extends our range of services and supported assets and increases access to a wider group of clients around the world.”
