Chris Trikomitis has been appointed as chief executive officer (CEO) of FXPrimus Asia-Pacific.
According to information available on his LinkedIn page, Trikomitis took up the role at the beginning of this year but, it appears, only made that information public this Thursday.
Trikomitis joined the retail broker in February of 2016 as head of operations.
In that role, he had to work on the company’s IT systems regularly to ensure they were functioning as well as possible.
The new CEO also worked alongside senior management on large-scale projects, dealt with 3rd party vendors and managed the broker’s cybersecurity procedures.
Trikomitis held the head of operations role until January of this year when he was promoted to his current role.
From State Street to FXPrimus
Prior to joining the broker, he had an array of experience in the financial services industry.
He started out as a project manager at CBRE Group, an American real estate investment company.

After almost three years there, he moved to State Street in late 2006.
Working as a project manager and IT support specialist, he spent over six years at the financial services firm.
In 2012, Trikomitis moved again – this time to Thomson Reuters. Working as a service sales manager, he dealt with a wide array of financial institutions, helping to provide them with Thomson Reuters’ technology solutions.
Trikomitis has taken up his role at an interesting time for FXPrimus.
Regulated and based in Cyprus, the broker has been trying to expand its business operations in Asia.
