ConvergEx Group, a provider of global brokerage and trading-related services, has tapped Gary Ardell as chief information officer.

Ardell, who joins the company's executive committee, will continue to serve in his previous positions as head of business strategy development and head of the financial engineering and advanced trading solutions unit.

Ardell joined ConvergEx in 2006 from Fidelity Capital Markets where he was head of financial engineering—the group that developed Fidelity’s algorithmic trading products as well as operating one of the largest automated equity market-making operations in the U.S. 

As chief information officer, Ardell is responsible for the technical infrastructure, software development and business processes of ConvergEx Group and for directing company resources in support of accelerating new product development and innovation.

“Gary has a highly impressive track record leading large-scale technology teams and developing award-winning products,” said Joseph M. Velli, chairman and chief executive officer of ConvergEx Group, in a statement. “His proven abilities and sound judgment make him the right person for this job as we continue to grow our company.”
