Head of compliance
Henry is the third person to be appointed as Head of Compliance at Stater in the past year and a half.
In February last year, David Dohmen was appointed to the position. Before joining the company his most recent role had been Director of Compliance & Operations at prop trading firm Ronin Trading UK/Europe. However, he only held the position at Stater for a month.
In April, Marc Stenzel was then appointed Head of Compliance. Stenzel joined the team with a decade’s worth of experience in international compliance. He worked for the company for a year and three months and is being succeeded by Henry.
Stater also made another major hire just this month as the broker announced that Mark Chesterman had joined the firm as Chief Operating Officer.
