New Trading Technologies Chairman & CEO Tim Geannopulos sat for an exclusive interview with John Lothian News to talk about what brought him back to TT, what his mandate is, and the potential sale of the company.
Geannopulos, who left TT as a senior executive when previous CEO Rick Lane was elevated to the role, is a shareholder in the firm who was brought back by majority owner Harris Brumfield to help with the sale.
When the first attempt to sell the firm failed, Geannopulos was brought in to lead the second attempt, which they called “ascent 2.0.” He is a “super-salesman” assigned to the job of finding a buyer for the firm, which just completed a 10-year process of overhauling its technology.
Geannopulos’ mandate is to sell the firm, and that mission comes across strongly in his interview as he highlights the value proposition TT represents and the types of firms who could be potential buyers.
We also talked about crypto trading, the explosion in retail trading and how a buyer for TT would have access to TT’s vast network of institutional customers, data products and history.
