Victor Hendrix Joins Fortex Technologies as Executive Vice President, Global Infrastructure Sales

“Victor’s experience in FX trading, software and hardware, coupled with his proven track record of success in relationship building and revenue growth made his addition to the Fortex team an easy decision. 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. XCLOUD® offers premium hosting and connectivity solutions from Equinix IBX data centers in New York NY4, Hong Kong HK3, and its newest location in London LD5.

Mr. Hendrix left Beeks Financial Cloud Group PLC (BKS:LSE) in December, having served as Global Director of Sales & Marketing for nearly two years. He has also been a proprietary FX trader and software project manager since 2005. His leadership of the Beeks revenue growth was directly instrumental to its public listing (IPO) on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange.

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.

Commenting on this recent appointment, Daniel Chen, CEO of Fortex Technologies, said, “Victor’s experience in FX trading, software and hardware, coupled with his proven track record of success in relationship building and revenue growth made his addition to the Fortex team an easy decision. His expertise and focus on quality brand recognition will be instrumental to the success and growth of the XCLOUD® global footprint.”
