CHICAGO, Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Key Technologies, provider of voice software designed specifically for traders and brokers, announced today the hiring of Ray McKenzie as Head of North American Sales.

McKenzie will focus on the North American expansion of Trader Voice Box, a virtual turret that leverages VoIP and replicates the hoot and ring down functionality of traditional hardware turrets and physical lines but at a fraction of the cost.  The Green Key VoIP network now includes over 200 of the world's largest banks, brokerage firms and trading firms and has steadily grown since the launch of Green Key in Q1 2014.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have Ray onboard," Anthony Tassone, Chief Executive Officer for Green Key Technologies, said. "Ray has over 25 years of experience in the financial markets having built successful sales teams at ICE, Morgan Stanley and CME. We are transitioning from start-up infancy to growth stage and Ray is a big part of that process."

"I was completely blown away by the soft turret technology," Ray McKenzie, Head of North American Sales Green Key Technologies, said. "Green Key is a powerhouse development team whose voice software is revolutionizing the market. We can help firms save millions of dollars. Green Key is a game changer."

The "Virtual Turret" remains free for download and enables a trader to search a directory of brokers and instantly establish a voice connection, similar to Skype, but made for the financial markets.  The secure connections are encrypted and conversations can be recorded and made available to compliance officers.

"Telecom is moving to the PC – where VoIP is dramatically cheaper, more secure and compliant," Tassone said. "The average brokerage firm will save hundreds of thousands of dollars in telecom costs and efficiency gains by switching to Green Key."
