Options appoints former NYSE Euronext executive Tim Yockel as new SVP of Global Sales

Options, the market leader in infrastructure as a service (IaaS) products for the global capital markets industry, has today announced that the former NYSE Euronext executive, Tim Yockel, has been appointed as the firm’s new SVP of Global Sales.

In his new role, Mr. Yockel will be responsible for leading the firm’s sales and account management activities, supporting the growth of the Options PIPE® Private Financial Cloud platform within both established and emerging financial markets, and across the broker dealer and investment banking communities. Mr. Yockel will join former NYSE Euronext and Wombat colleagues, Danny Moore and Ken Barnes, at Options. Both Mr. Moore and Mr. Barnes joined the firm in 2012. It also follows fast on the heels of the recent landmark deal with Citigroup spinout, Napier Park Global Capital, who have chosen Options as their managed infrastructure provider.

Mr. Yockel was previously responsible for global sales at NYSE Euronext’s trading technology segment, NYSE Technologies. Prior to joining NYSE in 2008, Mr. Yockel was head of sales at trading technology firm, Wombat Financial Software, which was acquired by NYSE Euronext in March 2008. Before joining Wombat, Mr. Yockel also served in a number of sales and business development roles at Reuters and Lehman Brothers.
