Prior to joining GreenKey, Shwayhat founded Pivot, an instant messaging service for financial markets that was sold to CME Group. As executive director, global head of sales and marketing at CME, he helped found a division that looked to deliver technology tools directly to trading customers CME Direct. Most recently, Shwayhat was global head of sales and business development at Novus Partners.
