LeapRate Exclusive… LeapRate has learned that FCA regulated institutional FX and CFDs broker Global Market Index Limited (or GMI Group) has continued its global hiring spree, adding Richard Bartlett to a senior executive role at the company.

Richard Bartlett is the former Head of Sales at leading technology provider PrimeXM, and has agreed to join GMI with immediate effect.

The hiring of Richard Bartlett follows our recent reports that GMI had over the past few weeks added ex DMM-FX executive Koji Miura to head its Japan business, as well as two former FXCM sales execs, Chris Hossain-Nelson and Aaron Brown. Earlier this year GMI hired Exness executive John Taylor as UK COO.

GMI CEO and Executive Chairman Ashraf Ebid told LeapRate:

Richard Bartlett is globally recognized and well respected within the FX and CFD broker community. I am delighted to have Richard join the GMI team and believe that he will prove to be an integral part of our future success in selling the “GMI Bundle” and all liquidity needs of FX and CFD brokers, Banks, HFTs and Professional Money Managers.

Richard Bartlett told LeapRate of his new employer and role:

I am absolutely thrilled to take up my new role at GMI Group. Ashraf’s experience within the FX and CFD space, and his commitment to putting together such a strong team as well as the range of great products and services that GMI can offer, convinced me that GMI is an exciting place to further my career.

Chris Hossain-Nelson, Global Head of Institutional Sales at GMI UK added:

Upon joining Ashraf at GMI earlier this year, we decided that we were going to house a “Dream Team” of Senior Executives within the FX and CFD space. Richard’s reputation is highly regarded, and he will bring with him unparalleled experience. I am excited to be working alongside Richard.  We are aggressively expanding the GMI Group management team and I fully expect us to announce more globally-recognized hires in the near future.
