chicago

Several years ago, Chicago-based professional trading platform and infrastructure company Trading Technologies waved goodbye to Tim Geannopulos after 15 years at the company.

Mr Geannopulos is now back, as the company has rehired him to serve as Chairman and CEO.

Mr Geannopulos comes back to TT bringing decades of financial technology experience to the company. In addition to consulting in the fintech space, he was a co-founder and president of Neurensic and previously executive vice president, global head of sales at TT.

“Tim will be instrumental in managing the key partner transactions we anticipate this year and will guide our strong team through the next chapter of growth and expansion,” said Harris Brumfield, majority shareholder of Trading Technologies.

While Rick Lane will ultimately be leaving TT to pursue a new opportunity, he will remain to facilitate client migrations to the TT® platform and to communicate TT’s technology vision to strategic partners. “Rick has been a tremendous leader and a visionary who has allowed TT to redefine institutional trading and market access technology in our industry,” added Brumfield. “We wish him the best success in his future endeavors.”
