He will report directly to chief executive Glenn Stevens and will be based in GTX’s New York offices.     
 
“Joe is a talented visionary with the proven ability to grow trading volumes and build innovative product and service offerings for leading institutional platforms,” says Stevens.  “Institutional trading is an important part of our growth strategy and having Joe lead this part of the business will help us build on the success we’ve had to date and achieve our goal of becoming a market leading ECN in the FX space.”
 
Wald was most recently head of Knight Direct, Knight Capital Group’s institutional electronic trade execution business.
