From FXCM to Citadel Securities
Finance Magnates reached out to Gilmore to find out what his future plans are, but the FX executive declined to comment.
Gilmore joined Citadel Securities in 2015. Prior to working at the market maker, he worked for almost six years at Shift Forex – a consultancy firm to the retail trading industry which he founded in 2009.
Gilmore launched the company with Ian McAfee, who continues to run the firm today, and advised brokerages on – amongst other things – marketing strategies, sales efforts, and technology.
Before going out on his own, Gilmore worked for dbFX, Deutsche Bank’s now-defunct retail trading service, for close to three years.
Prior to this, he also worked as a sales associate at retail brokerage firm FXCM.
During his time at the firm, Gilmore sold FXCM’s services to retail traders and its white label solutions to different firms. He also worked alongside McAfee – who was in the sales division – during his time at the firm.
