Over the next few years, he built a thriving practice as an IT consultant, leading the development of market data
management solutions for hedge funds, proprietary traders and exchanges.

In his prior role at Lekka Capital Management LLC, he developed the business with his skills and understanding
of the commodities markets, which are both technical and fundamental. Mr. Austin holds a BS in Engineering
