Industry veteran Carlos Lopez Lansdowne has joined financial market data solutions provider Exegy as its sales director for Europe and Asia. He will support Exegy’s drive to prepare European clients for Markets in Financial Instruments II (MiFID II) compliance and to deploy solutions in Tokyo and Hong Kong.
Based in London, Lansdowne will report directly to Exegy chief operating officer Rod Arbaugh. Lansdowne previously led EMEA and APAC sales teams at DXC Technology, Redline Software Solutions, Thomson Reuters and others.
Exegy says market participants have spent around $2.5 billion implementing MiFID II compliance ahead of the January 2018 deadline. In response, the company has increased its investment in developing on-demand market data solutions and managed services, the deployment of mutualised appliances for data-as-a-service solutions, and the expansion of its European and Asian feed handler portfolio.
Arbaugh comments: “We are bullish on our opportunities to grow in Europe and Asia. The addition of Carlos to the global team reinforces Exegy’s commitment to invest in Europe and Asia.” Exegy established a managed services office in London in 2016.
