Late last month, GKFX lost the newest addition to its management group with the departure of Managing Director Joe Rundle, who parted ways with the company after about two weeks with the brokerage. Mr. Rundle’s departure in turn followed just a couple of weeks after Jacob Plattner left, which ended a one-year stint with the group.
