London, 15.2.2001: OpenTrade Technologies has appointed Tony Kingston as Marketing Director. Tony's main responsibility will be to lead OpenTrade’s marketing team in taking Orbita, the real-time messaging and application integration software system to the company’s target markets.

Tony has 24 years experience in sales and marketing roles in the IT hardware and software industry, with experience of many markets and detailed knowledge of the service industry, especially the financial services, CRM and middleware technologies sectors. For the last six years, Tony has been with OpenTrade Technologies in a variety of marketing management roles.

Says Tony Kingston, 'OpenTrade has incredible strength and pedigree in the financial services sector. Our immediate task is to ensure that we will build on those attributes to expand our presence throughout the sector. Outside of our traditional markets we will work in partnership with strategic partners, like CMG and SGI to address new market opportunities for our unique real time publish/subscribe messaging middleware. We have already made an excellent start on this objective with the recent signing of the deal for the Orbita enabled CMG Cross application to Shell Oil.

'Our aim is to extend the use of real time publish/subscribe messaging middleware throughout the enterprise. There is no reason why the benefits of proactive information delivery and business management should be confined to the trading room; with Orbita every business can now take advantage of the leap forward that messaging technology has now made.'

OpenTrade's Chief Executive, Joel Jervis says, 'The announcement of Tony as Marketing Director is another of the important appointments we have made to our sales and marketing team. Tony’s expert knowledge of Orbita, our customers and our primary markets, together with his experience of the service industry sector will help us to realise our goals for significantly
increased growth and success. We are fortunate to have his talents and in-depth experience on the board to help steer us through the next phase of expansion.'

Aged 44, Tony is married with three children and lives in Hampshire.
