Trayport, a leading supplier of electronic trading systems, today
announced Dan Smith as the company’s new product manager. The promotion follows
Trayport’s recent product realignment, which addresses the key requirements of
Trayport’s user communities of Brokers, Exchanges and Traders.


As product manager, Dan’s main role will be to expand the capability of each of the
products in-line with the needs of Trayport’s customers, the requirements of the
marketplace, and Trayport’s overall development cycle. This will see him meeting
regularly with prospects and clients to further understand their individual business
requirements and incorporate these in the future direction of the products.


Dan joined Trayport in October 2003 as a senior software engineer and was promoted to
product manager earlier this year, reporting directly to Trayport’s CEO Edmund Hor. He
brings 13 years of development, team leadership and project management expertise from
his previous roles in the transportation, utilities and telecoms sectors. This includes
managing large scale mission critical projects at General Electric and Harris
Communications.


“It’s important that we fully understand each of our client’s requirements but at the same
time align our development with our different marketplaces. Dan’s role is central to the
continued success and future direction of GlobalVision,” said Edmund Hor, MD of Trayport.
“He will help in our aim to continue to deliver high performance, high quality products.”
