Edgewater Markets, the NFA-registered non-bank FX liquidity provider, has appointed FX veteran Sal Provenzano to be the firm’s new Managing Director of eFX Sales.
Provenzano joins the NY-based based company from GTX, an institutional foreign exchange trading platform. During his four-year tenure, Provenzano was responsible for GTX’s institutional sales with a focus on the group’s US clientele, based out of New York. His leave marks another senior staff departures to be announced since 360T agreed on a deal last year to buy GTX.
Prior to landing at GAIN GTX, Provenzano worked at Velocity Trade as its Head of Institutional FX since April 2013. Additionally, he also held senior-level roles at Prudential Bache/Jeffries Bache as its Global Head of FX Prime Brokerage, ABN AMRO Bank as its Director and Head of FXPB Sales, and MW Marshall Group as its Managing Director and Head of Foreign Exchange Brokerage.
Edgewater expects Provenzano’s industry experience, which dates back to 1981, and deep relationships to strengthen its global sales capabilities as it looks to expand its reach and continue to build market share.
