Architect & Development Manager, Treasury Solutions (1998 to 2002)

Representative Projects

  1. I developed an XML API to integrate with the collaborating systems that comprise a bank's trading infrastructure: front, middle and back offices talking by appropriate messaging tools.

  2. I developed a secure interactive Internet HTML/Java servlet front-end to allow a bank's corporate customers to place high-value transactions and monitor their status. I extended this system to allow the web interface to be presented on wireless, hand-held, palm-top devices.

  3. I advised senior management how the products are best developed to meet future sales and customer specifications with particular regard to new technologies and integrating the products with other applications, both Reuters and third party.

  4. I led the development of several highly integrated global energy trading systems for two major British-based petrochemical companies, one of which is still in daily use by about 1,5000 staff. These systems required integration into the companies' existing business processes and in-house systems.

Development Manager, Value Added Messaging (1992 - 1998)

Representative Projects

  1. I led the development of several highly integrated energy trading systems for a major British petrochemical company currently in use by about 1,5000 staff, and similar systems for an Anglo-Dutch petrochemical company which required integrated development effort by several parties.

  2. I did the business analysis, formal specification, and infrastructure architecture for a trading system for use in the former communist block. I met prospects in Russia, Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine to understand their business models and how an electronic trading system could benefit their chaotic business.

  3. I managed the simultaneous development by three external software houses of an infrastructure to provide secure and highly reliable regulatory news systems for several European stock exchanges (e.g. LSE, NASDAQ-Europe, Deutsche Börse, Vienna Börse, and others)

Applications Manager, Reuter:File (1990 - 1992)

Representative Projects

  1. I managed the specification, design and development of Reuters' Eurobonds time-series database to allow Reuters to enter the new market segment for historical price and yield data combined with real time analytics. My special interest and contribution was with the specification of the multitude of calculations required for the securities market. I sub-contracted some of the work to specialist external software houses thereby decreasing delivery time and improving the quality of the result.
