Cantor Fitzgerald has been relatively quiet on the personnel front since this past August when it added Samir Hussein as its NY Head, as well as the augmentation of its FX team with two former Goldman Sachs employees. In his new role, Mr. Gombocz will be reporting to Laurence Rose, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation.
