Exclusive: Inside the GETCO Execution Services Trading Floor
Managing Director and Head of Sales
Managing director and head of sales Drew Krichman has a bird's eye view of GETCO's clients, the exchanges they connect to and the overall market with an array of proprietary tools on his screens. "It’s a 30,000-foot view of the sales side. These guys watch other systems and look at order types. That means that they have a lot of alerts in their sights," he says. "If a call goes down, it rings a bell; if a customer is out, it rings a bell. If something crazy happens to a destination we route to it rings a bell." Once the bell rings, does this mean Drew and his team spring into action? It depends, he says. "The team is so small and that means that everyone lends a hand. If these two guys are certifying a trade with someone, the phone rings and we can jump on it," he says.
