Dash Financial Technologies has announced the appointment of Robert Boylan as Managing Director, Business Development.
In this role he will be responsible for further building the firm’s business among both its buy and sell side client bases.
Boylan brings over 25 years’ experience in the capital markets. He joins from Goldman Sachs, where he most recently led the firm’s Electronic Trading hedge fund sales team following several years leading the Broker Dealer & International Electronic Institutional sales group. Prior to that Boylan spent five years at Credit Suisse, working first in its commission management sales group and later co-heading its Advanced Execution Services (AES) sales team for broker-dealers. Before that he worked in various product management roles at Bloomberg, managing its Sell-side Execution and Order Management Solutions (SSEOMS), Fixed Income Trading and Equities Order Routing platforms. Boylan is a graduate of Southern Methodist University.
“Bob is extremely respected across the industry and we’re obviously very excited to welcome him to the team,” said Peter Maragos, Dash Financial Technologies Chief Executive Officer. “Between his experience in the trading technology space and the deep relationships he possesses, Bob will be invaluable as we work to continue building our business by bringing our advanced, multi-asset execution, workflow and transparency tools to both the buy and sell sides.”
Boylan added: “The pressures currently facing both the buy and sell sides are well known, but today’s innovative new technologies offer trading desks the tools they need to deliver real value to their firms. I’ve watched Dash become one of this industry’s truly disruptive forces over the last half dozen years by providing institutions a level of transparency, control and service that is unlike any other. I couldn’t be happier to join Dash at such an exciting time for the firm and I look forward to helping grow the impressive business that’s been created.”
