Owen-Lloyd, 52, joined from Leap Trading Ltd., which he co- founded in September with Simon Gadd, who remains head of origination and sales at Leap Trading, he said by telephone.
Clean Energy Trading now has three traders in Vlissingen in the Netherlands and two in London, Owen-Lloyd said. The team will be market-making on IntercontinentalExchange Inc., CME Group Inc. (CME), and European Energy Exchange AG.
“We are looking to hire another trader in the next six months,” Owen-Lloyd said. He was previously a cross-commodity director at CF Partners and head of U.K. power and carbon trading at EON AG.
Leap Energy hired Phil Westwood as a gas market maker in London in December, Gadd said by e-mail on April 12. Westwood previously worked at NatWest Capital Markets Ltd. and Goldenberg Hehmeyer & Co.
