LeapRate Exclusive… The integration of Tickmill and Vipro Markets continues.
Just several days after we reported exclusively that Retail FX and CFDs broker Tickmill has named Philippos Psyllos as Group CTO, LeapRate has learned that Tickmill has promoted Marilena Iakovou to Group Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).
The Cyprus based Ms. Iakovou had joined CySEC regulated Vipro Markets last year as its CMO. Vipro Markets was acquired by Tickmill in September, although we also reported that the two companies had actually been cooperating for some time throughout most of 2017, which included the sharing of some of the marketing partners and outsourced functions, until the acquisition was officially completed.
Prior to joining Vipro-Tickmill, Marilena Iakovou was in senior marketing roles with Orbex and IronFX between 2012-2016. She also previously worked as a Marketing Officer at the National Bank of Greece.
Duncan Anderson, Tickmill CEO commented to LeapRate:
We are delighted that we have been able to attract someone of her calibre to the team and are therefore pleased to promote Mrs. Marilena Iakovou to Chief Marketing Officer of the Tickmill Group. Her experience in the Forex market, combined with her proven track record of building strong brands in an evolving landscape will prove invaluable for the growth of our business globally.
