Deutsche Börse’s 360T Group has named Jack Linker as the company’s head of bank and hedge fund sales for the Americas. 

In his new role, Linker will be responsible for growing the company’s existing business and product suite and driving launch and adoption of 360T’s new FX and ECN trading initiatives. He will be based in New York, according to a statement, and will report to Matt O’Hara, CEO of 360T Americas.

Linker has a 41-year career in the FX industry, the statement said. He joins 360T from Thomson Reuters in New York, where he was the head of FX liquidity sales & management for the Americas. His role at Thomson Reuters involved leading the regional liquidity sales and account management efforts for wholesale, prime broker and B2C markets FX Spot, forwards and OTC derivatives.

Beforehand, Linker was a senior vice president at Cantor Fitzgerald, where he developed and marketed the first screen-based Foreign Exchange Forward Brokerage business in the inter-bank market.

“We are very excited to welcome a high-caliber market veteran that brings a wealth of FX industry experience combined with an unparalleled depth of understanding of the bank and hedge fund markets,” said O’Hara in the statement. “Jack is well positioned for leading our growth strategy across these client segments in the Americas.”

Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Frankfurt, 360T is an FX specialist and provider of a global multi-bank, multi-asset trading platform that utilizes web-based trading technology for over-the-counter financial instruments, integration solutions and related services.

The company, which was partially owned by private equity company Summit Partners, was acquired by Deutsche Börse Group in 2015 and serves more than 1,600 institutional asset managers, banks, companies and hedge funds in 75 nations.
