After three and a half years, Dan Conte has left 360T, where he was CEO and COO for the Americas.

Mr. Conte, who has extensive experience at senior level in the institutional electronic trading technology sector, has founded a new company called qbeats, which is a content valuation system that dynamically prices information and provides tools for monetization as well as a payment-alternative to access content.

Having joined 360T in New York in July 2012, Mr. Conte was appointed CEO for the Americas, after a year and three months as Managing Director and Global Head of Sales at Pivot Inc, which is a New York-based technology firm that provides collaboration, instant messaging and content management solutions for a network of institutional clients within the cash equity, equity derivatives, commodity and energy markets.

Between May 2008 and July 2010, Mr. Conte was Managing Director and Regional Head of EMEA at Bloomberg Tradebook Europe, based in London.

During this period, he managed Bloomberg’s DMA brokerage business across all asset classes in the European, Middle Eastern and African regions.

Mr. Conte spent a total of slightly over five years at Bloomberg Tradebook, and before moving to London for two years in 2008, he was Managing Director and Global Head of Transactional Support and International Operations in New York, a position which he assumed in 2006 after being promoted from his inaugural position as Global FX Business Manager, his first position at the company since joining Bloomberg Tradebook in September 2005.

Prior to joining Bloomberg Tradebook, Mr. Conte was Managing Director and Global eFX Business Manager at Refco in New York, a position that he spent two years in between March 2003 and May 2005.

Before the Millenium, Mr. Conte was a proprietary trader at Dresdner Bank in New York for three years, preceded by a year at Republic National Bank as a currency trader.

Educated at Wheaton College in Boston, Massachusetts, Mr. Conte holds a Masters degree in Economics.
