His career at easyMarkets began only three months ago, when he was hired as COO. While in this role, he developed the ‘Active Traders Group’, a training programme for new and experienced traders which has proven to be very successful.

Daniel Byrne said in a statement regarding the promotion: “I have always admired easyMarkets as a brokerage that goes so much further to support the successful trading outcomes of its clients. While never the cheapest option, the best option rarely is – and easyMarkets’ emphasis on training and its premium level of service, with no hidden pricing, is unique in its ability to genuinely help clients become better traders. I am extremely honoured to take up this appointment and look forward to developing our offering throughout the region.”

Nikos Antoniades, CEO of easyMarkets, said in an accompanying statement: “Since being appointed as COO, [Daniel] has shown exceptional drive and talent in leading the team and driving the business forward. He will therefore lead our strategic efforts to grow the Australian and the Asia Pacific market. We have every confidence in Daniel and wish him success in the exciting challenges ahead.”

In May, Finance Magnates reported on easyMarkets when its Head of Content and Senior Writer left in order to set up their own independent marketing company, Contentworks.
