Promotions and New Hires for April 2016

The spring rite of job hopping within the financial community is racing along as a bevy of new faces and job titles emerged inside IEX, Goldman Sachs, KCG, TMX Group and other financial powerhouses. Traders presents the top people moves of April 2016.

For a subtle month in the markets, April was a dramatic month for People Moves. A co-founder of a controversial dark pool operator abruptly left while top staffers left Goldman Sachs for – presumably – greener pastures. And a former professional soccer player and a retired Navy SEAL found new gigs on rough and tumble trading floors.

In this month’sTraders on the Move Monthly Roundup, we highlight the new names and faces inside such powerhouse firms as KCG, TMX Group, IEX and other powerhouse firms. Despite the near-constant news of layoffs taking place inside investment houses around the world, there are still plenty of opportunities for ambitious traders and brokers in cutting-edge fields.
