Exness has strengthened its executive team by hiring Mohammad Amer as the Regional Commercial Director for the Middle East and East Africa (MENA) region.

“Mohammad will be responsible for the commercial growth, development and management of MENA, one of the key regions in our New Markets business,” said Artem Seledtsov, Exness’ Chief Business Development Officer.

The appointment came after Exness made an industry record by handling more than $2 trillion in trading volumes for several consecutive months. It ended August with $2.8 trillion in trading volume, while the figures for last month are yet to be released.

An Experienced FX Executive

Amer brings more than two decades of industry experience to his role with the multi-asset broker. In his career, he has worked with several other forex brokerage brands for years in executive positions.

He joined Exness from Cyprus-based InstaForex, where he spent almost three years as the Business Development Director. Prior to that, he was the Head of Sales at ArgusFX for another three years. Additionally, he had a short five-month stint at FXPRIMUS, where he was the Head of Sales, according to his Linkedin profile.

In addition, Amer worked at ForexTime as the Vice President of Sales for more than a year.

He started his career as a Sales Manager at TTG Middle East & North Africa and later moved to Windsor Brokers, where he spent more than six years and parted as the Head of Corporate Sales.

“Mohammad started his forex career in 2006 and was among the few who took part in the financial expos before any forex -specialized ones appeared. He interacted with complete non-participants, and experienced fresh and green markets,” Seledtsov added.

A Growing Broker

Exness has added several other executives to its team as well over the past few months. Earlier, Daniel Gordon joined the company as the Corporate Services Director, Katina Messinis as the Premier Account Management Head, and Alfonso Cardalda as the Chief Marketing Officer.

The company, which has expanded aggressively in developing markets, is heavily focused on Africa and gained a regulatory license from the Kenyan regulator earlier this year, making it one of the handful of regulated brokers in the country. Furthermore, it is holding a license from the South African Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA).
