Dash Financial Technologies Hires Glenn Lesko as Chief Growth Officer

Dash Financial Technologies, a multi-asset trading technology and execution services provider, has appointed Glenn Lesko to the role of chief growth officer. He reports to CEO Peter Maragos and is responsible for driving the firm’s global revenue growth, both organically and inorganically.

Lesko brings nearly 30 years of experience to Dash, most of it delivering multi-asset trading solutions to buy-side firms. Most recently he served as CEO of Bloomberg Tradebook. Prior to that he spent nearly 10 years at Instinet, serving as CEO of Instinet Asia and later head of Americas Equities. Before that he served as a partner at outsourced trading firm CF Global, a managing director at Deutsche Bank directing the firm’s international trading desk, and a managing director at ABN AMRO, first heading its Asian trading desk in Hong Kong and later its international trading desk in New York.

Commenting on his role, Lesko says: “Dash is not encumbered by the restraints that many other firms face. We are a conflict-free technology firm that is 100% focused on delivering solutions to its customers. We have no goal other than to help our clients obtain the best possible performance.”

Dash was established in 2011 and in April of this year conducted a management buyout backed by private equity investor FlexPoint Ford. The company works with buy-side, sell-side and exchange organisations delivering high performance trading technologies, execution services, analytics and regulatory technologies.
