SuperDerivatives Appoints Ex-IBM Hod to Lead Strategic Sales

SuperDerivatives has appointed ex-IBM derivatives and trade processing head Zohar Hod as vice president of strategic sales. Hod specialises in front office to back office derivatives trading, processing, risk management and algorithmic trading, and will be in charge of the vendor’s key accounts.

He will be based in the New York office and will be responsible for tailoring and implementing the company’s large scale multi-asset solutions to a range of clients in the global banking and capital markets sectors. According to SuperDerivatives, he will use his experience in implementation of systems and large scale integration projects to work with key accounts on integrating the vendor’s solutions to back, middle and front office functions.

Hod joins SuperDerivatives from IBM, where he founded the company’s Trading Solutions Group. At IBM he and his team advised, installed and integrated numerous derivatives trading systems including Murex, Calypso, Front Arena, Summit and Sophis within global financial institutions.

Prior to joining IBM, Hod was a manager at KPMG/BearingPoint’s wealth management practice, and has founded several financial services technology platforms including ViewTrade, which was acquired by a large banking corporation.

David Gershon, CEO, SuperDerivatives, comments: “In the past few months we have been bombarded with requests to integrate our multi-asset solutions to in-house systems in large global institutions. Zohar brings an impeccable track record of integrating financial services technology and systems for global clients.”
