His expertise and focus on quality brand recognition will be instrumental to the success and growth of the XCLOUD® global footprint” – Daniel Chen, CEO, Fortex Technologies
Fortex Technologies Inc, a leading global provider of institutional FX trading solutions, announces that Victor Hendrix has joined the company to create and lead its newest division XCLOUD®. A global cloud server grid, XCLOUD® offers liquidity-agnostic and broker-neutral trading Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to support all trading platforms and all bridge middleware.

In his new role, Mr. Hendrix will lead Fortex’s efforts to grow the XCLOUD® brand. “Fortex’s industry-leading technologies already include an award-winning ECN trading platform, web trading platform, and bridge order management software,” said Mr. Hendrix. “Our newest opportunity is to deliver the message that XCLOUD® will offer brokers and traders alike the superior trading infrastructure and connectivity to the liquidity that they need, and that our clients will have complete flexibility in their selection of Liquidity Provider(s) and bridge middleware technologies. XCLOUD® is not confined to Fortex ECN or Bridge OMX clients, but rather is open to all FX participants, vendors and providers.”
Prior to entering the FX industry, Mr. Hendrix enjoyed an eighteen-year career as an Air Traffic Control Specialist in both the U.S. Navy and the Federal Aviation Administration. He holds baccalaureate and graduate degrees in Aeronautical Science and Aerospace Management.
