Australian-based foreign exchange (forex) broker ACY Securities continues to expand its team, this time securing Ashley Jessen as its Head of Marketing, Finance Magnates has learned.
Jessen joined the Aussie broker on September 2 this year. With his appointment, Jessen will now be looking after the broker’s marketing department, and Justin Pooni, who was the Head of Communications and Marketing for the firm, will now be focusing on the company’s communication.
As the Head of Marketing, Jessen will be in charge of developing the digital marketing strategy, building performance-based marketing campaigns, and identifying market opportunities, among other roles.
Speaking to Finance Magnates on his motivation to join ACY Securities, Jessen said: “The financial services industry around the world is moving faster than ever before, with technology playing a vital role in the growth. ACY Securities has a deep background in developing cutting edge technology, a unique perspective and a vision that quickly caught my attention.”
