Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: September 13, 2023
Propellant Digital, a fintech that captures and analyses trading activity to drive business decisions, has named Charlie Gibson as its new head of EMEA sales.
Based in Propellant’s London office, Gibson is responsible for sales to buy- and sell-side firms in EMEA and joins from recently-closed bond trading platform LedgerEdge, where he was head of buy-side sales for EMEA. Previously he founded BLOKX, a trading interface for the electronic trading of corporate bonds, and prior to this he was fixed income sales director for EMEA at Liquidnet.
“Over the past two years I have seen Propellant grow rapidly from a start-up to having a client base which includes eight of the world’s top ten Fixed Income trading banks, two Asset Managers, two Hedge Funds and four trading venues,” Gibson says. “With a growing reputation for quality and a recent funding round it is the ideal time to engage with my network to target new business in EMEA.”
Vincent Grandjean, CEO of Propellant, adds, “I worked closely with Charlie while he was at LedgerEdge and was impressed with his expertise and extensive relationships in the fixed income market, particularly with buy-side firms. Charlie is a great fit for Propellant, and I am delighted to welcome him to our growing team.”
Since Propellant launched in mid 2021 it says its analytics platform has attracted 29 clients globally, with many more onboarding.
