MDXT, a provider of real time data distribution solutions to the trading community, has appointed Brian Wurster as Head of Sales for USA & Canada, reporting directly to CEO, Paul Watmough.
Wurster (pictured), is based in New York and brings over 20 years of sales trading/broking and software sales experience having worked for leading financial firms including BGC/eSpeed, Tullet Prebon and Bank of New York.
Watmough says: “MDX is on a roll and we are delighted to formally welcome Brian into the business. The firm is experiencing a significant uptick in inbound enquiries, particularly in the North American market. And, we are already engaged in advanced conversations with number of leading firms, ahead of a major joint announcement we are about to make. To keep up the momentum, it was essential we had a dedicated and experienced person on the ground who could handle all these enquiries locally. Given his sales trading / broking background, Brian knows his way around the market and hit the ground running. We are very excited about the new opportunities we are already progressing, and I am looking forward to working closely with Brian over the coming months.”
Wurster brings extensive equities sales trading and fixed income electronic broking expertise to the business. During his six years with eSpeed, he also developed a deep understanding of specialist software business development and the importance of highly targeted marketing campaigns. His unique insights and experience, having worked within both financial firms and a software vendor company is proving to be invaluable to MDXT. Wurster also has an impressive rolladeck of established relationships with key stakeholders across the prime brokers, banking and IDB communities.
Wurster says: “Coming from a sales trading/broking background I have first-hand experience of what end users really need. With improved collaboration and cost cutting high on everyone’s agenda, MDX’s ability to seamlessly consolidate and customise data drawn from a wide variety of data sources looks very simple, but in reality, is very hard to achieve. MDX enables traders to create unique pricing scenarios very quickly and share these with customers, way faster than the competition, and the products are all very competitively priced. I would have loved to have had access to these capabilities when I was on the floor.
“The MDX development team is recognised as being the most accomplished in the business and the company’s commitment to quality standards throughout everything they do is exceptional. It is very satisfying to be part of a highly innovative and growing business, and I too, am looking forward to helping drive even greater adoption of the MDX solutions in this important marketplace.”
