JPMorgan Taps ITG Exec to Run West Coast Sales

Kurt Schliemann will join JPMorgan’s electronic trading group in June to run its sales effort in San Francisco. Schliemann, who spent his entire 11-year career with ITG, will join JPMorgan as a managing director. He was previously a managing director with ITG and ran its West Coast sales and trading effort since 2004. He oversaw six sales traders for ITG in San Francisco and was focused primarily on domestic equities. JPMorgan declined to provide further detail beyond Schliemann’s role and title. ITG named Chris Antipa to run West Coast sales and trading.
