Dexter Senft

Managing director and global head of fixed income e-commerce, Lehman Bros

At first glance, Dexter Senft doesn't look the adventurous type. He's smartly dressed, as Lehman Brothers bankers usually are. He has a quiet, patient voice, and short-cropped silver hair that gives away his maturing years.

So Euromoney was surprised that he had travelled to the meeting riding pillion on a motorbike from Heathrow airport. It's the best way to travel for top-flight executives, as a bike can cut through London's traffic much faster than a car. But it's not for nervous types.

It's not the sort of thing to scare Senft, who is a keen pilot and the owner of a Cessna 210 six-seater aircraft.

His career has taken some twists too. Thirty years in banking have taken him from the data-processing team (it wasn't called IT back then) at First Boston to becoming one of the first dot com entrepreneurs in finance, to being the global head of fixed income e-commerce at Lehman Brothers.

It doesn't stop there. He is on the TradeWeb board, and is chairman of the FIX committee - a group backed by the Bond Market Association that is developing a common language for electronic bond trading. On the way, he led the team that developed collateralized mortgage obligations in the US.
