The Foreign Exchange Professionals Association (FXPA) has held internal elections for its board, appointing multiple new officers to serve on its executive committee, per an FXPA statement.
The FXPA is a Washington-based organization that collectively represents the shared interests of brokers and market participants in the FX industry. The multinational group, along with its growing membership composition, was initially formed with the aim of advocating the interests of the FX industry to key regulators and policymakers via education, research, and transparency.
New Board Takes Shape
Following the new round of elections, FXPA members re-elected Chip Lowry, Senior Managing Director of State Street Global Markets, its Chairman, and Sean Tully, Senior Managing Director, Financial and OTC Products, CME Group, as Treasurer.
