The start-up corporate bond trading platform established by the founder of blockchain consortium R3, David Rutter, has hired a former sales director from Liquidnet in a similar senior role.
Charlie Gibson has been appointed as the business development director at LedgerEdge marking the latest senior appointment for the company, which aims to address the structural challenges in corporate bond markets with blockchain technology.
Gibson brings eight years of experience in corporate bond portfolio management and electronic trading in illiquid execution to LedgerEdge. He previously spent almost five years with Liquidnet as the fixed income sales director for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
“We are excited to welcome Charlie to our growing team, already working with forward-looking market participants across the buy-side and sell-side,” David Nicol, CEO of LedgerEdge, commented. “He will make a valuable contribution to these efforts and helps us bring the LedgerEdge story to even more parts of the market.”
