Mr. Konnaris proceeded to clarify, “Nikos is an accomplished leader, with a track record of almost two decades working in high-growth key financial positions in companies as Ernst & Young and V-Ship group. He joined easy-forex in 2007, and prior to becoming CEO, Nikos held the deputy CFO position and later on the CFO position. Nikos holds an MBA from The University of Warwick, as well as an FCCA, and we are confident of easy-forex’s future success and growth having him. These are very exciting times for easy-forex and I am confident easy-forex will reach new heights.”
According to the company’s statement to Forex Magnates, Nikos brings a great mix of leadership, inspiration, operational experience, technical breadth and passion for customer care. In addition, he has vast experience in establishing new ventures and has done a great job with easy-forex’s formation and preparation for the organization’s growth.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Mr. Konnaris started his long career at easy-forex as Chief Dealer back in 2005, subsequently moving on to become COO for a year in 2010, and and taking over at the helm in January of 2011.
The move comes after recent restructuring efforts caused by the increasing focus by easy-forex to become more deeply involved in the Chinese market, and merely a month after the company’s Chief Marketing Officer, Hillik Nissani, parted ways with the firm.
