Options, a managed service and IT infrastructure provider to the global capital markets industry, has appointed former NYSE Technologies and Vela Trading Systems executive Micah Kroeze to its management team.

Kroeze (pictured), joins the New York team as VP, Product Management where he will be responsible for driving new business growth and supporting the firm’s product development.
 
Kroeze brings nearly a decade of industry experience to Options from NYSE Technologies and Vela Trading Systems, where he oversaw the growth of the firm’s market data and hosted services product lines. Kroeze was instrumental in the expansion of the firm’s infrastructure, product management, security, and business development, and in January 2018 was subsequently elected to the FISD Executive Committee. He was directly responsible for architecting and deploying global multi-tenant colocation environments and information security programs to investment bank standards
 
As the latest addition to Options’ management team, Kroeze will be responsible for the development of Options’ Managed Colocation services, cybersecurity offering and the overall delivery of the firm’s product roadmap for 2018. Kroeze’s arrival follows the announcement last month that Options has expanded its Managed Colocation presence to 25 global venues, with new facilities in JSE & SGX.
 
Regional Head of North America and Global Head of Sales, Tim Yockel, says: “Micah brings a wealth of expertise to Options and our overall product development team. His specialised industry knowledge ranges from developing complex technology solutions through to delivering infrastructure and security enhancements to the financial technology sector. Micah’s expertise further bolsters our growth in the region and will be invaluable as we continue to innovate and meet the demands of an ever-changing industry. We are delighted to welcome him to the team.”
 
Kroeze adds: “Options has been an outstanding player in the industry for decades – it is a privilege to have the opportunity to be part of that story as we continue our rapid growth and expansion. I look forward to working with the team to further evolve our product offering and continue to set the industry standard for managed infrastructure services.”
