Continuing a major changeover in senior management worldwide, Denmark-based retail forex broker Saxo Bank has announced that Thomas Jegu (pictured at left) will replace Pierre-Antoine Dusoulier as head of Saxo Bank’s office in France.
Dusoulier had been CEO of Saxo Banque France since 2008, and Head of Western Europe for Saxo Bank since 2011.
New France CEO Thomas Jagu has been with Saxo Bank for more than 9 years, acting as Managing Director of Saxo Banque France since 2012. Before that he was Head of Sales France for Saxo.
Commenting on the news Global Head of Sales, Matteo Cassina, said:
Pierre-Antoine Dusoulier, Head of Saxo Banque France which he founded ten years ago, has decided to pursue new business opportunities. We thank Pierre-Antoine for his hard work and dedication throughout this period and wish him the very best for his future.
Thomas Jegu, who has been with Saxo for more than 9 years, will take over the role as President of Saxo Banque France. Having served as Managing Director and daily leader of Saxo Banque France for several years, we are confident that Thomas is the right person to keep Saxo Banque France on its strong growth path and leverage our strong technology and product offering even further.
Saxo Bank has reworked its global roster over the past year, which saw co-founder Lars Seier Christensen step back from active management of the company to focus on his new venture capital fund. Saxo Bank has made a number of key outside hires around the world in the past year, including the recent hiring of Gain Capital’s Ben Smoker as Australia CEO, and ex Nomura exec Jeff Zorek as COO of Global Sales. Last summer Saxo added COO Soren Kyhl from Danske Bank.
