Paddy Power CIO Kevin O'Connor has left the gambling firm to join NYSE Technologies, the commercial technology division of NYSE Euronext.

O'Connor took up the role of CIO at his new employer in September. When asked to comment on the challenges and opportunities at NYSE, the IT executive only said that his new role is "a lot of fun."

During his nine-month stint at Paddy Power, O'Connor divided his time between the company's headquarters in Dublin and London. At the bookmaker his focus was "all about high availability, a high degree of innovation, as well as huge focus on security and user experience."

Paddy Power did not respond to requests for comment at the time of writing.

Prior to joining Paddy Power, O'Connor held a number of senior IT roles at financial services firms such as MSCI Barra, Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank.
