"I'm happy to share that I've been promoted to Director – Institutional Sales at ADSS!" Hamd wrote in a Linkedin post.

Hamd has been working at ADSS for more than eight years. He joined the Abu Dhabi offices of the broker in November 2014 as the Vice President of the Institutional Desk for eFX Liquidity Coverage. Later, he assumed the role of Senior Vice President of Institutional eFX and CFD's Sales.

He entered the financial services industry in 2007, joining one company as a Senior Dealer, according to his Linkedin profile. After that, he moved to Premium Capital Group as the Head of the Trading Desk and then joined the Dubai offices of the UK subsidiary of Alpari as the Institutional Department Manager.

The promotion came when ADSS was strengthening its leadership team with new hires. Most recently, it hired Mark Hudson as the Group's Chief Human Resource Officer following the appointment of Tareq Haddad as a Compliance Director and Sophia Salim as the Chief Product and Innovation Officer.
