Product development veteran joins Torstone Technology

Torstone Technology has announced the appointment of David Pearson to its product team.

Based in London, David joins from Genesis Global, where he was responsible for post-trade workflow solutions. He brings over thirty years of experience working in financial markets, focusing on workflow and automation in the front office and post-trade space.

David previously spent twenty-five years at Fidessa, initially working with sell-side brokers and dealers to build and implement front and middle-office workflow solutions for equities. More recently, he worked with buy-side firms in asset classes including exchange-traded derivatives and repo.

“There has arguably never been a more interesting time to bring new digital solutions to the post-trade industry. I am excited to join Torstone and its talented team,” said David.

He is also former Co-chair of the FIX Trading Community’s Global Post Trade Working Group and has been actively involved in advancing the global industry debate around new post-trade business workflows, leading to significant efficiency gains and cost reduction.

“We are delighted to have David join our team. As we continue to invest in building our global leadership team and extending our platform capabilities into new markets, David’s deep post-trade product and industry experience, and specific expertise in middle-office solutions, will be an asset,” said Brian Collings, CEO of Torstone Technology.
