Axon has appointed two new members to its team with Steve Crosby joining as senior market data analyst and Ronan McKibbin as sales and business development manager, to boost its market data and sales expertise. Between the pair they have more than 30 years of industry experience at exchanges, data and trading technology companies. Stephen Crosby will be responsible for tailoring the vendor’s products—such as PEAR (Policies, Explanations Analysis Reporting) repository and ADS (Axon Declaration Service) outsourced reporting service—to meet end-user workflows. Before joining Axon, Stephen worked as a senior market data compliance and governance analyst at UK-based data consultancy 3D Innovations. Before 3DI, Stephen spent 10 years working as a senior market data auditor at the London Stock Exchange, prior to which he was a market data analyst at Imagine Software, a time-series executive at Barclays Capital, and a senior market data analyst at Reuters.
Ronan McKibbin, a dedicated salesman, has also joined the Axon team to help strengthen sales efforts. Before Axon, Ronan was most recently director of sales at Vela Trading Technologies, which he joined via its acquisition of NYSE Technologies’ Wombat business. Here Ronan carried out several roles including, director and senior pre-sales engineer and market data engineer. Prior to this, Ronan spent three years working at GFT as a software engineer.
