Russ Rausch
Opalesque Industry Update - Emil van Essen, LLC announced today that Russ Rausch has been hired as Chief Operating Officer. Rausch, who most recently served as Executive Vice President of Global Buyside for Trading Technologies (TT) will manage finance, operations, and investor relations for van Essen.

“We are excited to have Russ join us,” noted Founder and CEO Emil van Essen. “While he is respected in our industry for his sales and capital networking accomplishments, many people don’t realize that he was an integral part of building TT into a successful global company through his work as CFO, CIO and Head of Global Support. I look forward to the benefits of having Russ’ proven experience in successfully building and directing finance, operations, customer service and marketing. Adding Russ to our management team reflects our continued commitment to build a deep, solid and talented organization.”

“I am fortunate to join van Essen,” said Rausch, “their performance, growth, risk management and non-correlation in the CTA space are very compelling. It’s clear to me that Emil has a strong team that is committed to build a world class asset management organization.” PD
