“Peter is a true operations heavyweight and a proven leader who is viewed as a star in this industry,” said OpHedge director Myron Scholes. “Peter’s decision to join OpHedge is a testament to all that we have achieved since launching the business in May 2005. We now look forward to Peter helping us grow to the next level.”
