Retail forex broker FXCM Inc (NYSE:FXCM) has made some changes to its board of directors.
Stepping down from the FXCM BoD is independent director Perry Fish. Mr. Fish’s resignation was said to be for personal reasons, and not as a result of any disagreements between him and the company.
Taking Mr. Fish’s spot on the FXCM Board is Bryan I. Reyhani. Mr. Reyhani, 40 years old, served as Vice President and General Counsel at Merrill Lynch from September 1999 until September 2003 where he represented the firm and its representatives in various securities industry disputes. From September 2003 until April 2012, Mr. Reyhani was a partner at the law firm of Loeb & Loeb LLP, with his practice primarily focused on arbitration, litigation and regulatory disputes involving financial services firms.
In April of 2012 Mr. Reyhani left Loeb & Loeb to co-found his own firm, Reyhani Nemirovsky LLP, where his practice is primarily focused on matters before the SEC, FINRA, and other securities regulators. Additionally, in 2014 Mr. Reyhani co-founded and currently serves as the Executive Director and General Counsel for SolidX Partners, a venture capital backed firm engaged in the blockchain and bitcoin capital markets, consulting services, and software development industry where Mr. Reyhani oversees the development of blockchain software applications for businesses and consumers.
The FXCM Board believes Mr. Reyhani’s legal background in the securities regulation industry as well as his entrepreneurial leadership skills will be a valuable asset for the company.
Mr. Reyhani received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Syracuse University and his law degree from Brooklyn Law School.
