LiquidityBook names Jason Morris as new president

LiquidityBook, a provider of cloud-native trading solutions for both buy- and sell-side clients, has announced the appointment of Jason Morris as its new president.

Morris, who has a lengthy career in the industry and experience in various executive roles, is set to bring nearly two decades of expertise and insight to LiquidityBook. His hiring aligns with LiquidityBook’s strategy for growth, which includes strategic staffing throughout the organization, expansion through mergers and acquisitions, and upgrading its range of products and services.

Morris’ background includes nearly eight years at Enfusion, where he held the position of Global Head of Corporate Development and President. In these roles, he oversaw several departments including sales, marketing, product, operations, finance, and human resources.

Following his time at Enfusion, Morris joined PlateIQ (now known as Ottimate) as Head of Operations & Payments. During his stint there, he played a crucial role in growing the company’s payments revenue in just eighteen months.

At LiquidityBook, Morris is expected to drive the company’s expansion into new markets and establish relationships with key partners. He will also focus on enhancing LiquidityBook’s product offerings, particularly in the areas of portfolio, order, and execution management systems (POEMS), as well as their embedded FIX network.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jason to our team. His proven success in building high-performance teams and driving strategic initiatives speaks for itself. His expertise will be invaluable as we continue on our path toward expansion,” said Kevin Samuel, CEO of LiquidityBook.

“I’ve admired LiquidityBook from afar for many years and I am excited to step into this role during a period of record growth. Our technology has always differentiated the firm from its peers, but now being able to offer a complete front-to-back-office solution for asset managers is something I’m particularly excited about. I look forward to connecting with the team, our clients and our partners as we continue to level up,” added Morris.
