CHICAGO, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Green Key Technologies, winner of the 2015 most promising sell-side start up award and maker of patented voice software designed specifically for traders and brokers, announced today that Neal Shear, the former Global Head of Commodities Trading at Morgan Stanley and current board member of Cheniere Energy, has agreed to join the Company’s strategic advisory board.
The advisory board consists of founder and CEO of DRW Trading, Don Wilson, former CFTC commissioner Jill Sommers, former CEO of ICAP Electronic Broking David Rutter and former General Counsel of ICE Exchange Jim Falvey.
Mr. Shear will provide strategic advice and management guidance and assist in forming global partnerships with the world’s largest energy firms who are looking to transition to next generation telephony.
“We are incredibly fortunate to earn Neal’s guidance,” Anthony Tassone, CEO for Green Key, said. “Neal has global relationships across all asset classes and has built multiple successful businesses. We look forward to integrating his vision of the future into Green Key.”

The Green Key cloud-based “software turret” completely replicates the functionality of legacy hardware turrets and lines but at a fraction of the cost. Traders and brokers simply download the voice software onto their PC, establish connections to counterparties and “push-to-talk” in real time with an unlimited amount of users. Communication is encrypted, recorded and can be transcribed for real-time compliance capabilities. The Green Key VoIP network now includes over 250 of the world’s largest banks, brokerage firms and trading firms.
