Nick Solinger is president of the technology services division of the Futures Industry Association, an advocacy and education organization for the global derivatives markets. He joined FIA in January 2016 after spending seven years as the head of product strategy and chief marketing officer at Traiana, a post-trade processing and risk management network for FX, exchange-traded derivatives, equities and equity derivatives.[1]

He succeeded Mary Ann Burns, who was named executive chair of the FIA Tech board of directors.[2]


Solinger first joined Traiana in 2002 as vice president of marketing and business development. He left the firm for three years, when he worked as chief marketing officer for XOJET, a private jet charter company, but rejoined Trainana in 2009 as its head of marketing and product strategy.[3] He left the company briefly in early 2015 but returned in the same role two weeks later, concurrent with the departure of then-CEO Andy Coyne.[4] [5] [6]

Solinger led the team that launched Harmony, the firm's trade life cycle management network that is now considered to be Traiana's flagship product line.

Earlier in his career, Solinger spent four years at e-commerce firm Ariba. He joined Ariba in 1997 when it was a small but growing start-up, and went on to serve as VP Product Marketing across Ariba's series of enterprise software and on-line service offerings.[7] Before that, he managed the Americas Application Technology team at Oracle Corporation.

Pipelines: Nick Solinger Talks Market Infrastructure for SEFs
It’s been a historic year for swap execution facilities as more were launched in the wake of Dodd-Frank rulemaking by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

Nick Solinger, head of product strategy and chief marketing officer of Traiana, said that its been a good year for firms getting connected to SEFs and for SEFs getting off the ground. The firm connected 16 FCMs to 16 SEFs with six more on the way.

"The typical FCM has been able to clear, three, four, five, six different venues with that one connection to our hub," Solinger said. "Buy-side firms can similarly trade across multiple SEFs with one-credit line. So we really have realized that initial vision we had as an industry."
