Jonathan Woodward has been named as head of sales for TraditionData as part of a move to bolster the firm’s presence in Asia – the firm has also made two other appointments to the region in Rina Othman and Nick Bell.
Woodward recently left LSEG’s Refinitiv after mor than 14 years at the firm, starting when it was Thomson Reuters. He was most latterly head of FX for Asia-Pacific at Refinitiv, based in Singapore. Prior to that Woodward spent over six years at State Street’s Global Link as head of business development for Europe, before that he worked for Bridge Information Systems for almost six years.
Othman returns to Tradition Group after almost two years away, much of which was spent at BGC’s Fenics, where she was a senior business analyst. She previously worked for Tradition for nearly 10 years in client-facing e-commerce roles and is appointed senior account manager.
Bell, meanwhile, has worked for TraditionData for two years and is moving from the firm’s Madrid operation to Sydney to take up the role of business development account manager.
“I’m thrilled to be joining TraditionData at a period of such growth for both the company and the region,” says Woodward. “It is fantastic to be part of Asia’s leading inter-dealer broker at a time when it is rapidly developing the breadth, depth and analytical capabilities with unique and high-quality data. I look forward to using my many years of experience to help TraditionData grow its presence in Asia with this new and exciting mandate.”
James Watson, global head of sales and marketing at TraditionData, adds, “Jonathan has joined TraditionData at a pivotal moment. The demand for high-quality data across all sectors of the regional markets is increasing on a constant basis. I’m delighted to have him on board and highly confident that Jonathan, as an experienced practitioner in our field with an excellent reputation, will deliver in line with our ambitions for this region.”
