REDI’s Chief Technology Officer, Josh Schubkegel, joined REDI in late 2012 after serving as the manager of trading technology at Bridgewater Associates. Schubkegel says REDI is focused on recruiting talent from diverse sectors and backgrounds to drive strategic initiatives and platform expansion.
“As an independent and broker-neutral financial technology company, we are growing our business through strategic acquisitions and expanding our product offering. We are investing both in our technology and in our people,” said Schubkegel. “Michael brings a wealth of industry experience, and most importantly, an understanding of our clients’ technology needs. We’re delighted to welcome him to our team.”
“I’m joining REDI as we are building our infrastructure from the ground up, which positions us for our next phase of growth,” said Sirchia. “This gives us a unique opportunity to build out data centers that support our clients with new technologies and provide a faster time to market. I look forward to being part of REDI’s growth story.”
