Trayport, the leading supplier of multi-asset-class electronic trading
systems, today responded to recent sales growth across North and South America with the appointment of Bill

company’s American sales initiatives and further supporting growth across North and South America. In
addition, he will be supporting major energy and financial brokers that are running Trayport’s Broker and
Exchange Trading Systems.
In Bill’s previous roles he has led and supported multi-faceted, major sales initiatives and business development
sales projects across the United States. He brings with him extensive exchange-based experience, having
spent a number of years managing international programs for high profile exchange clients at OMX

transform the business of organisations like exchanges,” says Bill Olsen, Sales Executive, Americas, Trayport.

looking forward to furthering GlobalVision’s market penetration and helping organisations achieve the benefits of
faster and more flexible trading.”
