tradeMONSTER CTO Sanjib Sahoo Receives 2014 InfoWorld Technology Leadership Award

tradeMONSTER, a leading web-based brokerage co-founded by renowned options traders Jon and Pete Najarian, announced today that IDG’s InfoWorld Technology Leadership Awards recognized tradeMONSTER’s CTO Sanjib Sahoo in the “technology creation/enhancement” category for his vision, leadership and novel approach in creating tradeMONSTER’s patent pending mobile platform.

The Company created the trading industry’s first HTML5 mobile platform that has provided users with the functionality and consistency of its desktop real-time trading platform on their mobile devices. In March, tradeMONSTER Mobile received an unprecedented perfect score in Barron’s online brokerage rankings.

The Technology Leadership Award winners are selected based on the excellence and quality of the work environment by a panel of InfoWorld editors, and honor the nation’s best leaders in four technology categories:

  • Business Management
  • IT Management
  • Technology Creation/Enhancement
  • Technology Deployment

“InfoWorld's eight 2014 Technology Leadership Awards winners show that essential combination of creativity, vision, management, and political savvy that are necessary to stand out from their peers in helping their businesses grow, in rearchitecting their IT strategies, in deploying critical emerging technologies, and in innovating technologies themselves. We salute these leaders, and hope they inspire many others as well,” said Galen Gruman, Executive Editor/News and Features, InfoWorld.

Dirk Mueller-Ingrand, tradeMONSTER’s co-founder & CEO, commented, “Sanjib leads a dedicated team who consistently deliver technology that has proven itself remarkably stable, robust and user friendly. More important, their ‘bleeding edge’ work enables tradeMONSTER to deliver an amazing user experience seamlessly across desktop and mobile devices.”

Sahoo offered, “I am honored to receive this award from InfoWorld and be recognized among these other elite technologists. tradeMONSTER has come a long way in five years, but one thing has remained the same and will never change -- our determination to develop and deliver the absolute best technology solutions to our customers. If you have the discipline and hunger to engage the markets, you should have the best available tools and technology at your disposal. tradeMONSTER customers engage the markets with this confidence.”

Sahoo has been with tradeMONSTER’s parent company, tradeMONSTER Group, Inc., since 2006, the year when the Company was founded. In 2013 he was awarded “CIO of the Year” by The Executives’ Club of Chicago and was recognized last week in the Chicago Techweek100 list.
