“We are very pleased Liam has accepted the role of CEO for Equiti Capital. He brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of success in delivering solid results for Equiti,” said Iskandar Najjar, the CEO of Equiti Group.

“We believe that his natural leadership skills will be instrumental in driving Equiti Capital’s growth strategy and delivering further value to our clients and the wider business, and taking advantage of the significant opportunities ahead.”

Conway replaced Paul Webb for the role, who took over as the interim CEO of Equiti Capital UK in January, replacing Nigel Holmes, another interim appointment. Brian Myers was the last full-time CEO of the UK unit of Equiti Group, who was moved from the post to take charge of the Seychelles subsidiary. Webb will return as Equiti Group’s Chief Operations Officer.

CFO to CEO

Conway joined Equiti Capital UK in 2018 as the Chief Financial Officer and became the Group Financial Controller within six months. Later, he was promoted to Deputy Group CFO for the global Equiti Group.

In his long career before joining the brokerage, he spent more than six years at Intercontinental Exchange, first as a Financial Controller and then as a Finance Director. Moreover, he worked at SV Health Investors, Discovery Communications, Toyota Financial Services, and Deloitte.

“I am excited to lead Equiti Capital at this stage of its transformational growth,” Conway said. “With its strong reputation and talented team that has an innovative mindset, Equiti Capital is well-positioned to capture further market share. I very much look forward to working with the teams and taking the company to the next level.”
