DIGITEC has appointed George Procopiou, Anil Jassi, Liudmila Artyukhina, and Ioulia Grant, all based in London and reporting to Stephan von Massenbach, Chief Revenue Officer.
The provider of FX Swaps and NDF pricing and data is attempting to accelerate sales by getting closer to where the action is: London.
The firm will thus be able to improve its ability to support its London-based bank clients, better work with business prospects, and access the many regional FICC trading hubs located in the City.
George Procopiou joins as Client and Sales Enablement Manager. George has 14 years of experience in FX and FICC Client Management, previously working at IHS Markit, Societe Generale and Anglo Irish Bank.
Anil Jassi joins as Client and Sales Enablement Manager. Anil brings 12 years of FX corporate sales experience, having worked in e-FX and FX corporate sales at Deutsche Bank and Moneycorp.
According to Jassi, DIGITEC’s new London office has a ‘start up’ like environment, although the company has been built over the last 40 years from Germany.
Liudmila Artyukhina joins as Client and Sales Enablement Manager. Liudmila brings extensive product and company experience, having transferred to London from the Hamburg office, where she previously worked for DIGITEC in IT and Product Management.
Ioulia Grant joins as Product Owner. Ioulia has 15 years of experience in e-trading product management and software development having worked at Bank of America, HSBC, and Lloyds Banking Group. She has also worked in relationship management at Hotspot and CMC Markets.
Peer Joost, COO of DIGITEC, said: “Making these key hires in London brings us closer to our clients and new prospects, which is key to DIGITEC’s future growth. The first step was to bring in Stephan von Massenbach to open the London office and now we have a team of people with extensive Financial Markets experience to manage relationships, onboard new clients and enhance our range of products.”
Stephan von Massenbach, CRO of DIGITEC, commented: “With an experienced new team in London we are able to engage with more clients and capture the market’s demand for automated FX Swaps and NDF trading. Many of our new employees have cross asset experience and numerous industry relationships, which also helps to enhance our products to include pricing Precious Metals, Interest Rates and Crypto assets.”
Digitec has recently opened the London office and appointed Stephan von Massenbach, Chief Revenue Officer, to manage the branch. Peer Jost was promoted to COO in February.
