TABB Group Expands Global Presence with Additions in New York and London

NEW YORK and LONDON, March 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TABB Group, the international research and consulting firm focused exclusively on capital markets and financial technology, has announced the hires of Drew Seldin as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and Radi Khasawneh and Tim Cave as additions to the analyst team.

Based in New York for the newly created role of CMO, Seldin will be part of TABB’s executive management team and will be responsible for managing TABB’s marketing & distribution efforts and staff. His extensive background in marketing and publicity includes his work as the driving force behind the team that reshaped the Martha Stewart brand. He most recently served as the creator and managing partner of TriForce, a company producing high-end, officially licensed products from some of the world’s top video games. Seldin also worked as a publicist and as the director of corporate communications for Wizard Entertainment.

“As TABB Group looks to refine both our branding and the deployment of our products and services, the out-of-the-box thinking and experience that Drew Seldin brings to the table are invaluable,” said Anthony Perrotta, CEO, TABB Group. “The mediums through which data and content is consumed are changing rapidly. We are looking forward to bringing a new dimension to our directional thinking through his addition to the firm.”

As members of TABB’s European research team based in London, Khasawneh and Cave will report locally to the newly appointed regional head of European research, Monica Summerville. “TABB Group has always prided itself on being client-centric and understanding the direction of change and the impact change has on our clients,” says Perrotta. “The seismic shifts occurring in Europe cannot be understated. We believe the time is appropriate to expand our efforts and ensure client demands are being met.”

Khasawneh will rejoin TABB as a senior analyst in April from Boston Consulting Group and will be focusing specifically on the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) II and the developments in fixed income, foreign exchange and commodities markets impacting both European and global market participants.

Cave’s focus as an analyst will be specifically on equities, equities derivatives, and MiFID II, topics he has covered in-depth in his most recent role as trading and technology editor at Financial News. Prior to his impressive career reporting for Financial News and Dow Jones, Cave was an assistant manager in the corporate tax division at Deloitte.

“Radi Khasawneh’s experience gives him tremendous perspective on the markets that is a superb value-add for TABB Group in what we expect will be a transformational year for the global fixed income markets,” added Summerville. “Similarly, we are thrilled to bring Tim Cave into the firm and believe his comprehensive expertise and network of market participants will be immensely beneficial to our core equities team and listed derivatives franchise.”
