“I’m excited to bring everything I’ve learned with TT in London to this new role in Singapore. TT’s presence there is very strong, but there is still tremendous opportunity for further growth as trading activity continues to expand. I look forward to leading TT’s Singapore team to new successes.” said Pottle.
Peters returns to TT after spending two years as Vice President of Client Solutions at Macquarie Group. Prior to Macquarie, he led TT’s Sydney sales operations for eight years as Managing Director.

“As a customer of Trading Technologies over the past two years, I have been very impressed with how the company’s technology, business and relationships have evolved. I see tremendous opportunity for TT to continue growing in Australia, and I’m very happy to be rejoining this talented team,” said Peters.
As a further expansion of TT’s Asia/Pacific sales team, Daniel Widdis will be relocating to Hong Kong as Sales Manager from TT’s London office, where he presently serves as Customer Success Manager. Widdis, who has been with TT in London for seven years, previously worked for both Tower Trading Group and Marex Financial as a futures trader.
