LiquidityBook has appointed industry veteran Andy Carroll (pictured), as Chief Architect. Carroll, who will report to CTO Shawn Samuel, will be responsible for the technology architecture of the firm’s SaaS-based platform.

Carroll is LiquidityBook’s third major hire in as many months, joining Head of Technical Sales Les Vital and EMEA Client Services Manager Nicholas Thompson, both of whom joined from Eze Software Group.
 
Carroll ibrings over 30 years of experience across the industry. He joins LiquidityBook from Twitter, where he was a staff software engineer in the firm’s Live Video group, serving as the tech lead on the project to live-stream the NFL’s Thursday Night Football games during the 2016 season. He joined Twitter as part of its acquisition of social TV analytics firm BlueFin Labs, where he served as a tech lead. Prior to BlueFin he held multiple senior engineering, development and architecture roles for firms including aPriori, i2 Technologies, and Voice Control Systems. Mr. Carroll began his career in Sydney developing financial software, including a system that used speech recognition technology to capture the bid/ask quotes that were broadcast on the Sydney Futures Exchange’s floor.
 
Samuel says: “Flexibility and scalability are crucial to the ongoing success of our product, which makes the Chief Architect role one of the most critical in our technology organisation. Andy has spent decades working with firms across the technology spectrum, and brings an impressive level of experience, know-how and capability to LiquidityBook. We could not be more excited to welcome him to the firm and look forward to his leadership on several of the key infrastructure projects we have queued up.”
 
Carroll adds: “Over the course of my career I’ve had the good fortune of working as part of some extraordinary technology organisations. Though the firm is still relatively small, LiquidityBook’s platform is incredibly sophisticated, and its modular, web-based architecture really sets it apart from the legacy platforms in this space. I’m extremely excited to get to work with the talented team here and help LiquidityBook continue its global build-out.”
