Algorithm and analytics specialist Quantitative Brokers has named former Credit Suisse executive Guy Cirillo as the company’s new head of partnership sales amidst substantial growth in demand for the company’s algorithmic solutions. 

In his new role, Cirillo will focus on proactively developing business and product development initiatives with QB's strategic partners, including EMS & OMS providers, brokers, clearing firms and exchanges, the company said in a statement. He will be based in the firm’s New York headquarters, reporting to Alastair Hawker, Quantitative Brokers’ head of North America sales.

Prior to joining Quantitative Brokers, Cirillo spent 12 years as head of global business development at Credit Suisse, where he was responsible for all client third-party electronic trading relationships in North America, Europe and Asia for equity, futures, options, FX and fixed income. 

“Guy’s depth of experience in electronic trading and his industry relationships are unparalleled,” said Christian Hauff, CEO and cofounder of Quantitative Brokers, in the statement. “We operate in a rapidly changing and highly regulated environment, [so] to have Guy’s ability to match client needs with the distribution capabilities of our industry partners will be an invaluable asset for the firm.” 

Founded in 2008 and headquartered in New York, Quantitative Brokers is an independent, global provider of advanced best-execution agency algorithms and data-driven analytics for asset managers, hedge funds, fixed-income arbitrage funds, CTAs and banks trading in the derivatives, rates and cash markets.
