Kroeze brings nearly a decade of industry experience to Options from
NYSE Technologies and Vela Trading Systems, where he oversaw the growth
of the firm's market data and hosted services product lines. Micah was
instrumental in the expansion of the firm's infrastructure, product
management, security, and business development, and in January 2018 was

colocation environments and information security programs to investment
bank standards.

As the latest addition to Options' management team, Micah will be
responsible for the development of Options' Managed
services, cybersecurity offering and the overall delivery
of the firm's product roadmap for 2018. Kroeze's arrival follows the
announcement last month that Options has expanded its Managed Colocation
presence to 25
global venues, with new facilities in JSE & SGX

outstanding player in the industry for decades – it is a privilege to
