We are excited to welcome Michael Connor to the MarketReader advisory board. Michael is a seasoned business development executive with deep experience in the media, research, data and financial information/technology industries. His insights and expertise will significantly boost MarketReader’s ability to tap into new sales channels and cater more effectively to the needs of financial professionals.

After starting his career at Merrill Lynch and Moody’s Investors Service, Michael rose to the role of CEO at Market News International (MNI), a leading news and analysis service covering the fixed income and foreign exchange markets. He also took on senior executive roles at Deutsche Boerse and Xinhua Finance while continuing to run MNI. He then served as CEO of Gimme Credit, a leading provider of independent corporate bond research and investment recommendations to financial institutions, followed by a role as Executive Director of Global Financial Services at DriveWealth, a global B2B fintech company providing brokerage-as-a-service to financial platforms.

“As someone who has spent a large chunk of my career running a global financial news and data business, it’s clear to me that MarketReader is going to be a game changer,” said Michael Connor. “Jens Nordvig was an important and influential customer of mine at MNI, and it is great to be working with him again on this groundbreaking venture that is ushering in the future of financial market monitoring.”

Jens Nordvig, MarketReader Co-founder and CEO, commented, “we are thrilled to welcome Michael to the MarketReader advisory board. We look forward to benefiting from his expertise in not only financial research and media but sales and marketing strategy, as we look to scale the MarketReader technology aggressively in coming months as a solution for all market participants seeking to better understand what is moving and why.”
