As Anova Technologies prepares to introduce new products to the financial services industry, the company is proud to announce an addition to the team — Joe Hilt is the new Vice President of Sales and Marketing. A data networking and ultra-low latency expert, Hilt has nearly three decades of expertise in telecom, and continues to strengthen ties in and between the financial, OTT content and wholesale communities.

“Joe’s hire as our new Vice President of Sales and Marketing is a testament to our growth and continued focus on the financial marketplace,” said Michael Persico, CEO, Anova Technologies. Anova is a global connectivity and market data provider to the financial services industry.

Among other responsibilities, Joe will:

  • Direct Anova’s sales teams to achieve revenue objectives and manage commercial relationships
  • Help drive Anova’s soon-to-be-announced global market expansion and new financial services product rollouts

Prior to joining Anova, Joe was VP of Sales, Financial Markets with GTT Communications, following its acquisition of Hibernia Networks. Previously, he held multiple positions in sales and marketing with Hibernia Networks. He was one of the primary architects of Project Express, the lowest-latency transatlantic subsea cable system constructed to date.

“A global carrier with a client-first focus is precisely what is needed in the financial services industry,” Joe said. “I am going to make this part of my rallying cry here at Anova. There is a clear lack of a provider who has the customers’ interest at the forefront of their business. Anova’s international presence, proven connectivity options and market data distribution capabilities position the company to serve the financial services community in ways that have an immediate impact on their bottom line. I’m excited to be a part of the great team at Anova.”

Joe will be attending the 2018 FIA Expo — the leading global trade organization for the futures, options and centrally cleared derivatives markets. This year’s event will take place October 16-18 in Chicago. To schedule a meeting with Joe, email [email protected]
