David Hodge joins CMC Markets as Chief Commercial Officer

CMC Markets, the international provider of financial spread betting and Forex trading services, today announced an important addition to its senior management ranks. David Hodge, a name that needs little presentation for anyone in the FX industry, is joining the broker as its new Chief Commercial Officer.

david_hodgeDavid Hodge held the position of Group Marketing Director at spread betting and CFD expert IG Group Holdings plc (LON:IGG) until October 2011. After that he assumed the role of a chief marketing officer at Alpari UK Limited, where he was promoted to chief operating officer in July 2013 and in November 2013 took the role of chief executive officer. The work background of Mr Hodge, however, is rather diverse, with the proof coming from his past roles at Cadbury, Scottish Courage and bmibaby.
