Rick Lane is the CEO of Trading Technologies, a Chicago-based privately held independent vendor of professional trading software.
Previously, he was the executive vice president and chief technology officer at TT. He was appointed CTO on April 2, 2012 and became CEO on February 5, 2014, replacing Harris Brumfield.  He rejoined the company from Google, where he had worked as a product manager on their display ad serving technology. He first joined TT in June 2010, when TT acquired the company he cofounded, TickIt Trading Systems. 
As chief technology officer, Lane led TT’s global engineering, support and technology initiatives. He assumed this role in March 2012 after re-joining TT from Google, where he worked as a product manager on their display ad serving technology.
Lane first joined TT in June 2010, when TT acquired the company he co-founded, TickIt Trading Systems. At TickIt, he was the principal architect of ADL, a visual programming platform for automated trading. Using drag-and-drop building blocks, ADL allows traders and programmers alike to rapidly design, test and deploy automated futures and options trading programs without writing a single line of code. ADL is now fully integrated with version 7.11 of X_TRADER, TT’s signature order entry screen. X_TRADER 7.11 and ADL were released to customers in March 2012 as part of a milestone trading platform upgrade.
Before cofounding TickIt in October 2009, Lane worked for a proprietary trading firm, where he developed trading algorithms for the Chicago futures markets. Before entering the financial sector, he worked at consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton, where he developed defense-analysis software for the U.S. Department of Defense and other government agencies.
