The company has now issued a formal statement on the additions of Mr. Beecroft and Mr. Martenstyn, which follows:
FCA regulated FX, CFD and Spread Betting broker GKFX have announced the appointment of Rod Martenstyn, also the company’s CFO, as an Executive Director with immediate effect, joining Nick Beecroft as another recent addition to GKFX’s Board of Directors. In addition to this, majority Shareholder Kasim Garipoglu has stepped down from the Board.
Managing Director, Brian Myers commented,
There have been some strong developments to the GKFX Board of Directors. Recently Nick Beecroft joined us as Chairman, bringing with him decades of invaluable experience in this industry. Rod Martenstyn, our CFO, also joins us as an Executive Director. Rod brings a skillset and experience that compliments the Board and our focus on corporate governance framework extremely well. With these movements in mind and with full confidence in the direction of the company and its Board, Kasim Garipoglu has stepped down but will continue to support the company as Shareholder.
