Gold-i has announced an executive appointment in the Shanghai team. Laurence Luo, former Technical Account Manager at PrimeXM, joined the award-winning FinTech company as Technical Support Engineer.
In his new role, Luo will be responsible for providing technical support to Gold-i’s Asian-based clients and will also manage client relationships. The Shanghai office is open since March 2015 and has grown an impressive client base of brokers of all sizes across the region. Laurence Luo will likely provide technical support for the company’s most popular products in the Chinese market: Gold-i MT4 Bridge, MT5 Gateway, MAM products for both MT4 and MT5 and Visual Edge, its risk management solution.
Tom Higgins, Chief Executive Officer at Gold-i, said:
“Laurence spent eighteen months at PrimeXM and has a good understanding of our market and our clients’ requirements. His technical expertise, client servicing skills and team spirit make him an ideal fit for Gold-i. We are delighted he has chosen to join our team.”
Laurence Luo, Technical Support Engineer at Gold-i, commented:
“Gold-i has a very strong reputation amongst Asian brokers, and I believe has a significant competitive advantage in the region in terms of the functionality and performance of its products as well as its outstanding client service. Joining the Gold-i team provides a great opportunity for me to progress my career and I am proud to be part of such an innovative FinTech company.”
Laurence Luo developed strong communications skills in multi-cultural and multi-national organizations during his 3-year stay in Finland prior to joining PrimeXM.
The appointment of Laurence Luo to Gold-i is the second executive move from PrimeXM this year. Earlier in January, the firm announced ex-PrimeXM Mike Dugdale as a new senior sales manager. At PrimeXM, Dugdale carried out sales responsibilities, namely new business development, growing existing clients, and exploring new markets.
The appointments of Laurence Luo and Mike Dugdale follow a series of hires at Gold-i, including Ricky Strachan, who joined the firm in March from FinTech firm IRESS, and Dan Picone, also from IRESS, who is heading up Gold-i’s new Sydney office.
