Rostro Financials Group has appointed John Murphy, its Group Head of Retail Operations, as the new Chief Revenue Officer of Scope Markets. Murphy disclosed his appointment on Friday on LinkedIn.

The executive, who brings about 15 five years of forex industry experience to the role, has worked in senior roles for top forex and CFD brokers, such as OANDA, Alpari (UK) Limited and FXCM.

Murphy’s appointment comes a few days after Rostro announced that it has completed the acquisition and taken full control of forex and CFD broker Scope Markets. Additionally, Rostro disclosed that its management team assumed control of the combined business on January 7.

Talks on the acquisition of Scope Markets by Rostro started in 2021 and both parties agreed on the acquisition in February last year.
