GBST chief executive Stephen Lake said: “We are delighted to have Ian heading up our Capital Markets UK team.
“His in-depth experience in financial networks is combined with an incredible vision for where the industry is going, which fits perfectly with GBST’s philosophy for product development and commitment to global growth.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Jack said: “It goes without saying that I’m thrilled to be joining GBST at this stage of the company’s growth.
