The move comes after the firm announced late in June that Victor Gherbovet, who was the group’s Co-Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Management Board, resigned. He parted ways from Admiral Markets after spending 13 years with the company in several roles. He joined the broker as the Director of its Romanian branch in 2008 and later became the ESEU General Manager. He began serving on the Management Board in July 2020 and was promoted to the shared apex role last March.

“We are extremely grateful to him for the years he was part of the Admirals team. His contribution to the development of the company has been enormous, and together we have celebrated great victories, learned valuable lessons, and approached the long-term goals we have set ourselves as a company,” Sergei Bogatenkov, Admiral Markets CEO, said on Gherbovet’s departure.

Furthermore, Admiral Markets recently revealed its unaudited six-month financial results for 2021, witnessing 82% more applications than in 2020 and 451% more than in the first semester of 2019.
