Barchart executive & Fintech personality Mitch Naumann heads to Web Financial Group as Director for North America
Whilst at Barchart, Mr. Naumann worked alongside senior management on various FinTech initiatives, one being the FinTech Exchange event which takes place annually in Chicago and brings institutional FinTech leaders together to discuss future innovation
North American financial technology and market data company Barchart has waved goodbye to a prominent member of its executive team this week, that being Mitch Naumann.
Mr Naumann had spent nine years at Barchart as Global Market Data Sales Manager upon his initial appointment in 2008, before becoming FinTech and Market Data Business Development Executive in June 2015.
This week, Chicago-based Mr. Naumann has moved on from his longstanding tenure at Barchart to join Web Financial Group as Director for North America. The company develops data driven managed service solutions, and was was established in 2000 with current offices in London and Paris.
The company’s ethos is to democratize access to market-moving information for institutional and retail investors via web-based solutions, aligning itself with Barchart’s core business.
Whilst at Barchart, Mr. Naumann worked alongside senior management on various FinTech initiatives, one being the FinTech Exchange event which takes place annually in Chicago.
During last year’s FinTech Exchange event, FinanceFeeds worked alongside Barchart in announcing many vital new developments to the electronic trading sector and exchange listed derivatives venues – especially those seeking to acquire a retail audience – in their traditional heartlands of Michigan Avenue and State Street.
Some of the large institutions had begun reinventing their product range to follow the Amazon-style shopping experience in the case of CBOE LIVEVOL which launched its new Data Shop service, with an entirely new website last week, with retail traders absolutely in mind, a world first that was showcased at Barchart’s event.
Others included technology providers, such as Trading Technologies, one of America’s most prominent trading software vendors, which reinvented itself after 20 years in order to innovate rather than institutionalize.
Global leaders including Choon Aun Quek, Google’s Head of Cloud Hosting for the Americas and several senior executives from the electronic exchange listed derivatives and futures industry addressed over 400 attendees on aspects that are currently in the spotlight in terms of institutional FinTech innovation, a feat that Mr. Naumann can look back on with satisfaction.
Graduating from the Northern Illinois University in 2008 with a Batchelor of Science degree in Operations Management and Information Systems, Mr. Naumann is one of the young and urbane leaders within Chicago’s technologically advanced financial derivatives sector.
