Danish multi-asset broker Saxo Bank continues to see personnel movement, with Ken O’Brien, the group’s Deputy Chief Experience Officer (CXO), parting ways with the company to move back to the United States with his family, Finance Magnates has learned.
Mr. O’Brien joined Saxo Bank back in January 2016 – he worked as the group’s Chief Experience Officer for over a year and a half, whilst based in London. In this capacity, he helped strengthen the firm’s global business development efforts by liaising between the Markets and Experience offices to ensure Saxo Bank’s solutions and messages were properly calibrated.

Prior to joining Saxo Bank, he held roles at Fundation Group in sales and business development, as well as roles as COO of Business Development and Senior Vice President (SVP) at GAIN Capital, among other jobs dating back to 1993, according to information made public on his Linkedin profile.
The departure is the latest in a string of unrelated recent moves at Saxo Bank this month. Earlier this May, Philip Wegloop left Saxo Bank, after being appointed to the newly created role of CXO back in 2015. During his time with Saxo Bank he was responsible for the group’s global user experience across the value chain including marketing, digital, PR and external communications and competitive intelligence. In his place, Saxo Bank installed Arnoud Rozendaal.
Additionally, this May also saw the departures of Janus Erichsen, who relinquished his role as the group’s Associate Director and Head of Paid & Earned Media, and Jesper Rasmussen, Senior Director and Head of IT Client Data.
