BDSwiss has hired Andreas Neocleous as the company’s new Chief Operating Officer, the forex and contracts for differences (CFDs) broker announced. He will report directly to the firm’s CEO, Nicolas Shamtanis, who joined the company last month.

According to the press release shared with Finance Magnates, Neocleous’ primary focus in his new role will include overseeing the broker’s project management office (PMO), IT and business intelligence departments.

“I am confident that Andreas’ wealth of expertise will benefit not only our internal operations but will also support our current expansion plans and contribute to BDSwiss’ continued success,” said the CEO, Shamtanis.

An IT Expert

Indeed, Neocleous is bringing more than 15 years of diverse industry experience to his role at BDSwiss. He started his career in late 2007 in the information technology industry.

He moved to the trading industry in October 2014 with an IT role at the broker brand XM. But, he was soon promoted to Project Manager there and oversaw its software developments, according to his Linkedin profile.

Before joining BDSwiss, he spent a couple of years with IronFX, another Cypriot forex and CFDs broker. He left the company as the Head of Project and Product Management.

Shamtanis added: “Andreas Neocleous has an outstanding reputation in the Forex and CFD trading industry and we’re very pleased to be welcoming him on board. In an increasingly demanding fintech arena, having a strong COO with a focus on technology can be instrumental in our product and client experience optimization efforts.”

Neocleous’ appointment at BDSwiss came when the broker is already making some major changes to its leadership. Last month, the broker brought in Shamtanis as the new CEO and hired Abdulghani Khattab as its Marketing Head in the MENA region.
