London-based retail brokerage Tickmill has promoted Carla Nemr to take on an expanded role as its chief business development officer.
Carla has originally joined Tickmill back in 2017 as its global head of business development. Prior to that, a two year tenure as Regional Sales Manager at Amana Capital took her career between 2015 and 2017, preceded by 20 months as sales manager at Falcon Brokers.
Other stops include working as a regional sales representative and account service manager at ForexTime Limited, the CySEC-regulated arm of Andrey Dashin’s FXTM brand, which recently ceased its services to retail investors in Europe.
Carla has ventured into the FX industry in 2009 with FxPulp, then she spent a brief stint at Alpari FS, part of a lengthy career that dates back to 2001.
A transition period at Tickmill
Carla’s promotion comes amidst a transition period at Tickmill which saw a number of executive reshuffles and new projects in recent months. Earlier last year, the company parted ways with Petros Kalaitzis who held several client-facing roles for nearly three years.
FX derivatives veteran Rex Johnson also quit the UK broker as he headed to the institutional side. He parted ways with Tickmill after spending two years as head of derivatives sales and trading. During this stint, he drove the growth of the cleared derivatives business with global listed investment exchanges, along with his expanded responsibilities in the company’s FX retail brokerage business. He was also instrumental in expanding the broker’s product portfolio with the launch of futures trading to capitalize on the growing popularity for such instruments outside their traditional users.
Tickmill is a group of companies with UK FCA, Cypriot CySEC, SC FSA, South African FSCA and Malaysian LFSA licenses. We last reported on the company when it expanded its offering through incorporating the MetaTrader 5 (MT5) platform into its live trading infrastructure.
