BidX Markets hires former LMAX exec Lina Litvinovaite as COO
BidX Markets, which recently launched as a global multi-asset tailored liquidity solutions provider, has announced it has appointed two new members to its senior management team, to further strengthen the company’s service offering.
Joining the BidX Markets team are Lina Litvinovaite as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Glen Ward as Head of Compliance.

“I’m very excited to be joining the company. I believe that our clients and their needs should always be at the centre of our attention, and I’m glad I will be working such an experienced team who share the same views. BidX Markets already service a strong base of clients, and with an expansion of the team will continue to provide unique liquidity solutions through ongoing innovation.”
Glen Ward said:
“Throughout my career I have always strived to be at the forefront of industry advancements and place a strong value of leading with a client centric approach. BidX Markets provides both in bundles and I look forward to working with this dedicated team of industry professionals.”
