Retail FX broker IronFX has onboarded FX industry veteran Thomas Selby to take on the role of its head of business development.
Selby joins the Cyprus-based firm following a lengthy career in the finance world, the bulk of which was spent within the FX industry. He had worked with an array of FX brokers across his lengthy career that dates back to 2004.
Selby’s experience across the mainstream markets should help IronFX at a time when the firm is expanding the reach of the offering that is primarily focused on retail trading to appeal for B2B partnerships and cryptocurrency business.
He jumps to IronFX coming from Exinity, which was launched in 2020 by entrepreneur, Andrey Dashin. The group is chaired by FXTM co-founder, Olga Rybalkina and is comprised of the various retail businesses owned by Dashin, which includes Alpari International, ForexTime (FXTM) and Exinity Capital East Africa in Nairobi.
Selby spent eight years at Exinity where he held several roles including, most recently, as head of international business division. He also served as head of sales from 2014 to 2020 after he was brought originally in as a business development manager for Asia back in 2013.
Commenting on the news, Thomas Selby said: “3 months ago my 8 year journey with Exinity, FXTM & Alpari International came to an end, it was a pleasure to work alongside some wonderfully intelligent and creative people. I wish all the best to them and Exinity in the future. After a busy but refreshing 3 month sabbatical, I am very excited to announce that on the 1st of September I will be starting the next phase of my career with IronFX as Head of Business Development.”
Selby’s experience in the brokerage industry started at FxPro in 2007 when he joined the retail FX broker as a customer support supervisor. Then, he joined the Cypriot broker FIBO Group back in 2010.
Selby spent three years at the multi-asset brokerage and left in 2013 when he was the man in charge of leading support, sales, IB and back office departments.
