Mirus Futures, a futures broker for CTAs, self-directed traders and automated systems developers, has named Martin Franchi as its new CFO.

Franchi was previously a finance director at 7ticks, where he oversaw the day-to-day financial operations, accounting, planning, sales support, and procurement. He managed the financial integration of 7ticks during its acquisition by Interactive Data.

Prior to 7ticks and Interactive Data, Franchi worked for Kraft Foods in various capacities within the finance and accounting organizations.

Franchi said that Mirus team’s fresh mindset on brokerage services and impressive enthusiasm for customer support attracted him the most.

“I’m very pleased to accept the CFO position and hope to add to their already very successful track record of helping customers succeed in their trading and investing objectives,” Franchi said.
