Eventus names software engineering veteran as CTO

Trade surveillance firm Eventus Systems has appointed Josh Bosquez to the role of chief technology officer.

Bosquez, who holds over 24 years of experience in the software engineering space and more than 20 in leadership roles, joins Eventus after serving as CTO for computer security firm Armor Cloud Security, where he was responsible for the company’s engineering, product, security and compliance organisations.

Prior to joining Armor, Bosquez served as director of software engineering and later senior director of software engineering for compliance solutions firm Layered Technologies. He also was a senior software architect for consulting business Miller & Associates, alongside several other software engineering positions.

Bosquez will report to Eventus CEO Travis Schwab and will oversee a team of engineers that design and maintain the company’s Validus platform, which is used by more than 20 traditional and digital asset exchanges and a broad range of tier-1 banks, futures brokerages, broker-dealers, trading firms and other financial institutions.

Schwab said, “Josh has a strong track record of developing innovative technology, scaling operations with growing teams and building wide-reaching, secure systems. As we further expand globally and explore new ways to help many of the world’s leading financial institutions address their evolving surveillance and risk challenges, Josh will lead our engineering team in introducing new technologies and identifying novel opportunities for enhancing Validus.”

Bosquez added, “Eventus has assembled a stellar team of smart, experienced and dedicated engineers, as well as leaders, market practitioners and regulatory experts. I’m excited to play a role in growing the engineering team and ensuring that our technology is cutting-edge while remaining easy for our clients to use and customise.”
