Gold-i, a trading systems integration specialist for the financial services industry, has promoted mainstay Julian Elliott, who steps into the role of Operations Director with immediate effect, according to a Gold-i statement.
Mr. Elliott has been one of the longest tenured individuals at Gold-i, having started with the group back in 2010 as its Operations Manager. In this capacity he has helped manage the day-to-day operations in the company, as well being tasked with Gold-i’s product testing, the running of the group’s client support system, and the handling of its product suite.
In his new role as Gold-i’s Operations Director however, his regiment of duties will be largely similar, though he will be taking on additional responsibilities, including financial management and client account management. Mr. Elliott originally joined Gold-i from Princeton Financial Systems in 2010, having worked as its QA Lead for over five years – additional stops also include HFC Bank.
