After a career spanning 15 years at London’s prominent IG Group Holdings plc (LON:IGG), Arman Tahmassebi has left the British CFD and spread betting firm to assume his new position as Chief Operating Officer of London Capital Group Holdings plc (LON:LCG) as the latest addition to Charles-Henri Sabet’s urbane and sophisticated management team.
Charles-Henri Sabet, CEO of London Capital Group, spoke to LeapRate today regarding Mr. Tahmassebi’s appointment, “We are very pleased to welcome Arman Tahmassebi on board at London Capital Group, and fully believe that his high standing in the industry, and wealth of experience will complement the leadership team at London Capital Group.”
Mr. Tahmassebi’s most recent and final role at IG Group was Global Head of Operations, within which he had several international responsibilities which ranged from his standing as President & CEO of IG Markets North America where he established a branch of the firm in Chicago, distributing services throughout the American continent.
Mr. Tahmassebi was responsible for the oversight of sales, marketing, customer service, operations, finance, IT, facilities and the HR teams.
Additionally, Mr. Tahmassebi was responsible for leading IG Group’s European and South African operations, where he led sales, marketing and operations within IG Group’s European offices, and oversaw the management of all branches located in UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Netherlands, Norway and South Africa.
As Global Head of Operations, Mr. Tahmassebi’s remit extended to ensuring that IG Group’s IT development operated under his management, as well as the general corporate matters including payments, commercial actions, retail and corporate client onboarding, and ensuring and maintaining third party data vendor relationships and back office administration teams.
Mr. Tahmassebi is a highly educated industry professional, and is qualified as a lawyer having obtained his Batchelor of Laws and Economics (LLB) degree from the University of Leicester in England in 1998, followed by his commercial litigation course at College of Law in London from which he graduated in 1999.
This move, therefore, represents a significant step for Mr. Tahmassebi, whose entire career since graduation has been at IG Group, culminating in a very senior role at the company.
