Euronext expands FX division with wave of new hires

Executives from NatWest Markets, Barclays, Euronext, and GFI Group have all joined the exchange’s FX division across its liquidity management and sales operations.

Euronext has expanded its foreign exchange division with four new hires across its liquidity management and sales division in a bid to further grow the business.

The new appointments were confirmed by Euronext FX and Euronext US chief executive officer, Kevin Wolf, on social media.

Kai Sing Chang has been appointed to the firm’s liquidity management team and will be based in Singapore and contribute to its Asia growth plans.

Chang joined Euronext FX in March after serving for four years at NatWest Markets in electronic foreign exchange sales, having also previously served at State Street as a sales and business development manager for four years.

Dimitri Mancy was appointed junior liquidity manager in November, based in London with the expectation that he will later move to New York to expand the US liquidity team.

He originally joined Euronext in 2018 as a cash and equity derivatives analyst, going on to become operational clients’ relationship officer.

Alongside the liquidity management appointments, two new hires have been appointed to the US sales team.

Maura Prisco was appointed as an FX sales associate in February last year and will report to Clinton Norton who has led the US sales division since joining Euronext FX in November after serving for 12 years as BARX sales director at Barclays.

Prior to joining Euronext FX, Prisco was a non-deliverable forward (NDF) broker at GFI Group for over two years for Latin America.

“This hiring activity is a testament to our ongoing commitment to growing the Euronext FX business. Wishing all our new hires a warm welcome!” said Wolf in his announcement.
