Jim Sullivan has been named general counsel at trading technology provider OneZero. He will be based in New York and report to Andrew Ralich, co-founder and CEO of OneZero.
Sullivan began his career at JP Morgan in 1986 where he remained until 2001, serving as the transactional corporate/securities counsel. He exclusively represented the internal business incubator division, responsible for spin offs and venture capital matters.
Thereafter, as the general counsel of FXall, he helped to guide the firm as it grew its business. OneZero says Sullivan’s legal expertise has been sought by committees involved in the governance and compliance of FX trading and overall financial regulation. He worked closely with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Foreign Exchange Committee, and has helped to design policy relating to MTFs (multilateral trading facilities) and SEFs (swap execution facilities). In addition, he has implemented jurisdictional approval in several countries, and has expertise in customer agreements.
“[OneZero] has a portfolio of world class proprietary solutions and a rich vein of untapped intellectual potential,” says Sullivan. “As such it is perfectly placed to expand on the impressive achievements to date. I’m looking forward to working with the senior management, stakeholders and all my colleagues to help take the firm to the next level.”
Ralich adds, “We feel extremely privileged to have Jim join the company. We are very excited to be bringing on a general counsel with such valuable experience across the Institutional FX space, coupled with a history of working with highly complex systems in both academia and throughout his career. OneZero remains uniquely positioned to handle the scientific complexity of our business as we break new ground with our solutions and in new market segments.”
