Trayport has promoted Dan Smith to be the company’s new product manager. The promotion follows Trayport’s recent product realignment, which addresses the key requirements of Trayport’s user communities of brokers, exchanges and traders. As product manager, Smith’s main role will be to expand the capability of each of the products in-line with the needs of Trayport’s customers, the requirements of the marketplace, and Trayport’s overall development cycle. This will see him meeting regularly with clients to further understand their individual business requirements and incorporate these in the future direction of the products. Smith joined Trayport in October 2003 as a senior software engineer and was promoted to product manager earlier this year, reporting directly to Trayport’s CEO Edmund Hor.
