List has made significant additions to boost its operational team in the UK over the past year. Alessandro Galleni, who joined List in 1999 after having worked as a software engineer at IBM Milan, will replace Stefano Falciani. After six years as List UK MD, Stefano has taken on a position as business development manager at List Group with a particular focus on List’s international business expansion.
Alessandro has been actively involved in List’s major software development projects for internal matching engines in the European and Asian electronic markets. He has also led the Metamarket normalised connectivity layer within List’s flagship trading platform, FastTrade, while fine tuning his knowledge in electronic market models and capabilities. In 2005, he joined the UK team supervising the technology department and working on major projects with the UK customer base.
List UK is a well established company with top tier banking clients. Alessandro, responsible for the UK and Ireland markets, will assume the day-to-day management of the company. Reporting directly to the CEO, Galleni will be based in London as one of the four regional directors helping to further establish List’s presence globally.
Enrico Dameri, CEO, List Group, comments: “Alessandro has a vast amount of technical knowledge and expertise which will help us continue to accelerate the growth of our business in the UK. List’s multi-asset class and operational risk analysis solutions are in great demand and in the past year we have invested very heavily in our UK team to support the demands of our existing clients and prospects.”
Alessandro Galleni, managing director, List UK, says: “I am proud to be leading the company in the UK. Since 2005 when the company launched its London office, the quality of its people, products and services have ensured a rapid uptake among UK-based financial services firms. I plan to help List build on this success and ensure clients and potential clients take full advantage of the List product set.”
