Robbie McDonnell is the former head of Trading Technologies' Asia business, based in Sydney. He left the firm after a reorganization of the sales and customer service division of TT in June 2017.[1]


McDonnell relocated to Asia in 2006 and spearheaded TT’s recruitment and business development drive. Previously, he served as managing director of the company’s London operation. He first joined TT as a member of the original London sales team in 1998. He worked with the City’s major proprietary trading firms and banks to establish TT’s presence there, and he witnessed first-hand the shift from open outcry to screen-based trading. Under his leadership, TT’s London office expanded from three to more than 40 in London. McDonnell developed strong ties in the European trading community that have been integral to TT’s global success.

He returned to Sydney in 2016 after heading up sales for TT in Chicago for two years. The move was part of a reorganization of senior sales roles at the Chicago-headquartered company.[2]

In Chicago he was the executive vice president of global sales for TT, responsible for leading TT's sale operations worldwide.[3]

Before taking the global sales post in July 2014, he was based in Sydney, and served as vice president and managing director for Asia/Pacific sales at TT, managing all of TT’s Asia/Pacific sales operations, including TT’s regional headquarters in Singapore plus offices in Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney.

He is a published author and a frequent speaker at industry events.[4]

Before joining TT, McDonnell held senior sales management positions with Dow Jones Markets and FutureSource in London.


McDonnell was born and educated in Dublin.
