London-based brokerage firm, Tickmill has parted ways with Petros Kalaitzis who held several client-facing roles for nearly three years, Finance Magnates has learned.
Mr Kalaitzis, whose career in the FX industry spans more than 11 years, has served most recently as Head of client services at the listed derivatives (UK & EU) division. He originally joined Tickmill in 2017 as a team leader in sales and customer support, where he offered training and guidance to staff in many business areas.
Without revealing his next destination, Petros confirmed to Finance Magnates that he is leaving Tickmill on good terms.
“I would really like to thank my line manager Rex Johnson, not only for the guidance he provided but also for the great effort and assistance in building client-facing teams for listed derivative products. Of course, I would

also like to thank our great client services team for all the hard work and effort and wish them all the best,” he added.
Petros was then promoted to his recent role back in 2019, tasked with building client-facing departments. He was also responsible for leading sales & service teams in exchange-traded derivative products (Futures & Options).
Kalaitzis joined Tickmill from FocusVision, which was preceded by a three-year tenure at Saxo Bank, based out of Danish investment bank’s offices in Cyprus. His career in the foreign exchange space encompasses a short stint at IronFX as a Client Relations and Customer Support specialist. In addition, he spent seven months with the Israeli social trading platform, eToro, as a dealer.
Commenting on his departure, Petros Kalaitzis said: “Almost 3 years ago I joined Tickmill to pursue an amazing role within the sales department. This amazing opportunity soon became even better when I also took over the support department of the whole group. The years I have spent here have helped me grow both professionally and personally. Finally, the amazing job we have done was concluded when I was assigned the task to create a new client-facing department that will be dealing with listed derivative products, from scratch. And so it happened. We launched last year!”
Tickmill has recently reported strong trading volumes. The company disclosed that in 2020 its platforms processed over 9 million trading transactions per month, and in March 2020 its turnover hit the all-time record of $170 billion in notional value. The broker closed the year with an average monthly trading volume of over $142 billion, which was 14.7 percent higher than the previous year’s $123.8 billion.
