The news of Indu and Kevin’s appointments comes a month after Jim Sullivan was announced as the company’s General Counsel, where he will be responsible for the company’s global legal function, based in New York.

oneZero has appointed two key executives: Indu Maheshwari as Product Manager for the development of the fintech’s extensive OTC liquidity ecosystem; Kevin Verardi as Product Designer of oneZero’s credit offerings and the Institutional Hub’s trading user interface.

Both will serve in oneZero’s Institutional segment, which offers multi-asset enterprise trading technology solutions for institutional brokers, banks, and liquidity providers.

Andrew Ralich, Co-Founder and CEO of oneZero, said: “We are delighted to welcome Indu and Kevin, whose knowledge will help to establish our products as we continue to break new ground with solutions for institutional clients and liquidity providers.”

18 years at Thomson Reuters

Indu Maheshwari joins oneZero from Fluent Trade Technologies, where she served as Chief Operating Officer, but her time at Thomson Reuters made a mark.

There, she was Head of Relationship Management, FX Transaction Sales, Asia, managing liquidity providers, and buy-side clients. She also played a role as Head of Post Trade Services, Sales and Trading, Asia, where she was in charge of the launch of Trade Notification (RTNS) and business development for Electronic Trading, which included the launch of CFETS (China Foreign Exchange Trade System).

Indu Maheshwari, Product Manager at oneZero, said: “I am excited to help liquidity providers benefit from access to the over 200 brokers that are in the oneZero distribution network through shared and tailored streams, with sweepable, full amount and bespoke streams supported.”

FXall, Bank of America, and Lehman Brothers

Kevin Verardi joins oneZero as Product Designer after working as Director in Relationship Trading (buy-side) at FXall for LSEG/Refinitiv, responsible for FXall’s RFQ and RFS venues.

Prior to that, his extensive expertise in FX and FXPB Product Management was gained at Bank of America, where he headed FXPB Product VP, responsible for FX and FXPB projects including designing the FXPB UI. At Lehman Brothers, he served as VP of FXPB Global Client Service Desk Manager and started the multi-product desk from scratch.

Kevin Verardi, Product Designer at oneZero, commented: “I am looking forward to progressing oneZero’s credit offerings and improving the trading user interface which enables users to organize their liquidity, execute trades, and manage their risk positions.”

ex-FXall General Counsel Jim Sullivan joined oneZero

The news of Indu and Kevin’s appointments comes a month after Jim Sullivan was announced as the company’s General Counsel, where he will be responsible for the company’s global legal function, based in New York.

Jim Sullivan can be called a JP Morgan man. He joined the investment bank in 1986 and served there until 2001, but he also helped the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Foreign Exchange Committee in designing policy relating to MTFs (multilateral trading facilities) and SEFs (swap execution facilities).
