Execution provider Dash Financial has hired Bloomberg veteran Steve Bonanno as its first CIO.

Bonanno was formerly head of risk operations at Bloomberg-owned agency brokerage Tradebook.

Prior to this, he was global head of alliance support.

His previous experience includes a CTO role at Direct Edge, where he was responsible for the trading operations and technology at the firm.

During his tenure at Direct Edge, he led the firm’s merger with ISE Stock Exchange and the launch of the EDGA and EDGX exchanges.

He has also held senior technology positions at NASDAQ, BRUT ECN, MarketXT and Instinet.

“Steve is one of the most well-regarded technology executives in the capital markets, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome him to the DASH family,” said Peter Maragos, co-founder and CEO of Dash.

“He has headed the technology organisations at several of the most innovative and disruptive firms in our industry, and we are thrilled at the prospect of him leading our technology operation teams as we continue to empower our clients with bespoke, performance-driven solutions.”
