Incoming hire brings over 12 years’ experience to the firm, having previously served at Infinox Global, Zenfinex and ForexVox.

Hantec Markets has appointed Lee Holmes as head of institutional sales, ahead of the launch of the firm’s institutional arm Hantec Prime.

As part of the role, Holmes will be responsible for building out and managing business development efforts across the firm’s various global markets.

Holmes brings over 12 years’ worth of experience across the foreign exchange and derivatives markets landscape.

He joins Hantec Markets from Infinox Global, where he served as a member of the executive management team, focusing on sourcing and tailoring an institutional FX and CFDs liquidity solution to institutional clients.

“For this role, we were looking for someone who had the experience of working on both the retail and institutional side of FX and CFD trading,” said Hayel Abu Hamdan, chief commercial officer at Hantec Markets.

“Given Lee’s experience, he was the obvious choice for helping us build strong relationships and drive our growth within the institutional community and we’re thrilled to welcome him onboard.”

Earlier in his career, Holmes held a range of director positions at other brokerage firms, including Zenfinex and ForexVox.

“I’m excited to join Hantec Markets’ team and help them to expand their global presence across the institutional side of FX and CFD trading,” said Holmes.

“I’m looking forward to being at a company with a rich heritage, whose primary goal is to deliver the best trading experience for our customers.”
