LiquidityBook Appoints New Principal Software Engineer to Focus on POEMS Platform

LiquidityBook has appointed Alexander Ponyrko as Principal Software Engineer, where he will be responsible for a range of development initiatives around the firm’s industry-leading POEMS (portfolio, order, and execution management system) platform and reporting directly to CTO Shawn Samuel.

The leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based provider of buy- and sell-side trading solutions hired Ponyrko for its more than a decade of experience as a technologist, and in response to growing demand from fund managers who increasingly abandon legacy technology providers in favor of more agile, web-based models. He will be working closely with LiquidityBook’s client service organization to help rapidly implement client-driven development priorities.
