Antelope Systems, a Cyprus-based provider of call center management solutions, has parted ways with its CEO Ori Hazan, nearly 15 months after he took over the company’s leadership in February 2018.
Hazan confirmed his departure to Finance Magnates without providing the exact details about his next destination, which according to his Linkedin profile will be co-founding a new startup.
“Parting ways with Antelope wasn’t an easy decision. I absolutely love the people, the product and have a very strong belief in its vision. During my time in Antelope, we’ve managed to build a world-class product, create key partnerships and establish the company as an industry leader. This couldn’t have been done without my amazing friends and team members at Antelope,” Hazan told Finance Magnates.
Concerning his new initiative, he notes: “However, like every entrepreneur – I feel like the company is well established now and it’s time for me to go on a build something new. I have been going back and forth with an old desire I had and felt like now is the right time. Me and my partners will be announcing the details of our new venture very soon, but in the meantime, I can just share that I will be staying around, and will see all of my colleagues and friends in the upcoming iFX Expo with a new and exciting new offering.”

A four-year term at Panda Systems
During his time as chief executive officer at Antelope Systems, Hazan contributed to positioning the company in the changed environment of the financial services industry. Antelope Systems, which offers marketing, lead management, and phone systems for call centers, has broadened its product offering by launching a customer relationship management (CRM) system for MetaTrader 5 brokers. This was the first step the company had taken into the growing market of institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5.
Prior to joining Antelope, Hazan held multiple job roles during his nearly four-year term at Panda Trading Systems, most recently serving as its VP Business Development.
He initially entered the FX industry as a financial dealer at GLTFX back in 2011, where he remained for roughly one year. He then joined the dealing room team at Dealserv in 2012, before taking over as Chief Dealer a year later.
We understand that Antelope Systems has already begun its search process for a successor to the departing CEO, and this will consider both internal and external candidates.
