Less than a week after news of appointment of Kelly Yount, Euronext has revealed yet another addition to its high level management team. According to latest update, the European forex ECN (Electronic Communications Network) service provider revealed that it has hired yet another director of sales and similar to last time, the move was first made public via the respective individual’s LinkedIn profile. The firm has now on boarded forex sector veteran Wyman Shing to serve as director of sales based out the firm’s Singapore office. Wyman’s tenure at the firm began at end of August 2019 around the same time his counterpart Ms. Kelly Yount took up her role as Director of Sales at the firm’s New York office. Euronext FX was formerly known as Fast Match FX but has since been rebranded as Euronext FX, serving as a subsidiary as Europe’s largest stock exchange operator and financial services provider Euronext post its acquisition in 2017.
The stock exchange operator acquired the FX service provider as part of the its strategy to diversify its product line and add additional asset class to its product range. While the firm has been rebranded to bring it under the brand identity of Euronext, it still continues to operate as standalone firm having retained its original name which is now used to label the trading technology which powers Euronext FX. Prior to joining Euronext FX, Shing served for six and a half years at Royal Bank of Scotland from their Singapore office. Shing joined the firm back in March 2013 and served as the head of FX E-Commerce Sales for their Asian market region except for Japan. Shing is an industry veteran with nearly 14 years of experience, the entirety of which was spent serving in key roles for Forex teams at top tier financial service providers.
He started his career as FX Electronic Trading Specialist for Bloomberg back in November of 2004 during which time he was mainly focused on South East Asian countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia. After serving at Bloomberg for nearly 7 years, Shing moved on to Thomson Reuters and served as Director of Sales for South East Asian market region focusing on their forex product offering FXall. Shing’s tenure at the Thomson Reuters was relatively short as he resigned from the firm after serving for just 18 months post which he joined RBS where he served until he joined Euronext last month. The firm was also in news in recent past for acquisition of 23.5% stake in Tokeny Solutions – a compliant tokenization platform which allows the European stock exchange provider to expand its asset class to include cryptocurrencies widening its product portfolio.
