"At this stage of our growth, we are positioned to run farther and faster this year than ever before. With new regions and asset classes being developed, bringing Tony on board to lead business development will amplify our ability to deliver these products to the customers and prospects who have been asking for more transparency and control over their trading of additional products," said Hitesh Mittal, Founder & CEO of BestEx Research. "There are very few people suited to this unique role, growing multiple business lines globally. Tony's proven success in developing and scaling businesses across asset classes and regions make him exceptionally qualified to drive our expansion."

While at ITG, Tony managed all non-US subsidiaries in Europe, Asia, Australia, and Canada, coordinating all global product lines and brands and developing an industry-leading algorithmic and electronic trading product suite. Following ITG, Tony served as Head of Equity Execution Services for the Americas at Royal Bank of Scotland and Head of Institutional Sales at Citadel. Most recently, Tony served as CEO of Score Priority (now Lime Trading), where he drove the strategic acquisition of Lime Execution where he had earlier served as President and COO. In each of his previous roles, Tony has driven platform expansion and adoption and is positioned to do the same at BestEx Research. Tony holds a BS in Economics with a concentration in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

"BestEx Research has a unique value proposition as a tailored and transparent end-to-end execution platform that simultaneously meets the distinct needs of both buy-side and sell-side customers.
