Getco has released details of the management team that will lead the company, following the Knight Capital merger set to go through in the second quarter.
As expected, current Getco CEO Daniel Coleman will lead the company, while Knight CEO Thomas Joyce is to serve as executive chairman of the board of directors.
The bulk of the management hierarchy will be made up of the current Getco crop, but there is space for Knight's Steven Bisgay, Albert Maasland and George Sohos as chief financial officer, global head of equities trading, and global head of client market making, respectively.
John DiBacco, a former UBS employee who was sacked in the wake of the Kweku Adoboli rogue trader scandal and moved to Getco last year, will be head global equities trading, while his former UBS colleague Nick Ogurtsov retains his role as chief risk officer.
The other key tech posts fall to current Getco staffers, CTO Jon Ross and COO Darren Mast.
