French bank Société Générale has just appointed Tom Gillie as Head of FX Options and FX Spot Trading. He will be based out of London and joins the company at a time of extended expansion of the French bank’s foreign exchange team.
Gillie joins after Société Générale has already hired several key sales and trading staff recently. Back in August, the French bank got Ben Rosswick and Julio Castro Zuazo from Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

The Global Head of Institutional Sales at SocGen, Marc Zaffran, has been actively expanding his team to reignite growth in the unit at a time when foreign exchange volatility has been on the rise. With the inauguration of the new U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday, the FX markets are likely to continue on a more volatile note when compared to last year.
Tom Gillie has vast experience in the foreign exchange industry. Throughout his career in the financial services industry, he spent almost 10 years at Credit Suisse as Head of FX Options Trading in Tokyo and Singapore.
Gillie also served as a Non-Executive Director at CLS Group between 2012 and 2016. Most recently he’s been the Global Head of FX Trading and Head of EMEA Equity Trading at Bank of America in New York, Hong Kong and London.
