John Preston CEO and founder of Match said: “Daniel joins match as head of investment and will work with the team and management to evolve our trading position in the market. After a thorough talent review of the market Daniel stood out as our perfect match both culturally, for his breadth of experience as well as a passionate view on where the market is heading in the future. We are excited about bringing on new highly regarded talent to help our clients grow.”

Of joining Match Cutrone said: “I have been impressed by the work and reputation Match has held within the market over the past few years. After meeting John and the team I was really impressed with the vision of the agency. I am extremely excited about the role and looking forward to working with the entire team at Match.”

Preston added, “Theo joined us three and a half years ago at a time when we did not have trading in-house. Together we built our trading offering from scratch. He’s done a brilliant job and we want to thank him for delivering a strong trading position and more importantly a strong trading team; a perfect time to hand over the reins to Daniel.”
