Prized Goldman Tech Hire Mike Blum Leaves, Extending Spate of Exits
Thu, 06 Feb 2020 01:05:39 +0000
(Bloomberg) — It was such a coup when Goldman Sachs Group Inc. landed electronic-trading veteran Mike Blum in late 2017, that the bank whisked him straight into its prestigious partnership. Now, he’s joining a spate of senior technology executives abruptly leaving.Blum, the former tech chief at high-frequency trading specialist KCG Holdings Inc., informed Goldman Sachs of his decision to step down as chief technology officer for electronic trading, according to people with knowledge of the matter who asked not to be named discussing personnel matters. A company spokesman declined to comment.It’s the third departure of a key executive from the trading unit’s electronic operations in as many days. He follows Ezra Nahum, its chief of engineering and operations, and Adam Korn, head of engineering. This week the bank also lost Rana Yared, who invested the firm’s own money in several fledgling tech ventures.Together that’s a significant bleed of expertise in operations Goldman Sachs told investors just last week will play a pivotal role in the investment bank’s evolution and growth for years to come. The steady drip of departures from one area is unusual for the elite firm, even at a time of year when bonus payouts unleash a wave of personnel moves across Wall Street.Goldman’s leaders touted a variety of tech projects at the investor day, explaining how innovations will lure clients and boost revenue. The departures will add to the pressure on the firm’s co-chief information officers, Marco Argenti and George Lee, and its chief technology officer, Atte Lahtiranta, to build a team capable of delivering on those goals. Two of them are themselves new, with Argenti joining the bank from Inc. and Lahtiranta from Verizon Media Group, both last year.Blum has been closely involved with efforts to reshape the firm’s electronic-trading platform to serve large quant hedge funds. The aim is to then deploy those advancements across a larger set of business partners. Reducing trading time, processing more requests and spitting out faster responses to queries would help generate more trades and more business.When he joined Goldman Sachs an internal memo said he would help build “an optimized large-scale electronic-trading platform.”At KCG, Blum oversaw the design and build-out of a trading and research platform. Earlier in this career, he was CTO at high-speed trading firm Teza Technologies. He also worked at Getco, a company that pioneered high-speed trading and formed KCG in a merger with struggling Knight Capital Group Inc. in 2013, as well as at UBS Group AG.To contact the reporter on this story: Sridhar Natarajan in New York at snatarajan15@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Michael J.
