Richard D. Moore has been appointed Director of Investor Sales. Mr. Moore brings more than 20 years of financial services and technology experience to DirectMarkets and has an extensive understanding of the institutional trading desk and execution workflows. He has held senior-level sales positions at Pipeline Trading, Lazard Capital, and Instinet.

As we continue to grow, it is critical that we have the strongest possible team in place. Jim, Rick and Matt bring an immense amount of experience and innate ability to our Company, and we are thrilled to have them on board.
