DENVER / CHICAGO, Nov. 16, 2017 – CQG has had a focused effort to add China to its global network of data and execution. With the imminent launch of this initiative, the firm announced today that Rod Giffen, President, CQG, has relocated to China and will serve in the newly created position of President, CQG APAC. Ryan Moroney will return to CQG to assume the new role of President, CQG Europe and the Americas.

Tim Mather, CEO of CQG, said: “We view China as an important addition to our global presence. Rod has been instrumental in developing a talented team in preparation for the forthcoming rollout. I’m excited about adding China to our global network to better serve our customers.”

Moroney, who will re-join the firm in December, began his career in 2003 as a member of CQG’s Data Quality team. During his 11 years at CQG, he helped build CQG’s API business. His roles at CQG expanded to include product management of the Market Data and Order Routing teams and Director of Operations for the API division. He left CQG to pursue an opportunity at S&P Capital IQ, where he currently serves as Vice President of Sales to S&P’s Corporates Segment in the Americas.
