Rosenblatt Securities hired Scott Burrill as director of product development and analytics. Burrill will report to CEO Richard Rosenblatt and COO Joe Gawronski. Burrill's responsibilities will include developing proprietary trading algorithms, as well as pre-trade and post-trade analysis, and statistical and optimization techniques to enhance the firm's single-stock and portfolio-trading business. He also will work with clients on their trading and execution technology needs.
"The vision for the tools, technologies and techniques that I had back in the early '90s have come full circle to fruition with the embracement of algorithmic trading tools and automated trading techniques," says Burrill, who most recently served as an independent consultant for Rosenblatt. He previously was head of trading strategies at Russell Investment Group and director of trading for Westpeak Global Advisors, and has experience working as a portfolio manager.
