Ox Securities, the trading name of ASIC-regulated brokerage Ruizean Markets, has parted ways with Waleed Salah, who joined the Australian company in April as head of sales for the MENA region.

Waleed Salah

For his latest stint, Mr. Salah has landed at AssetsFX, a registered FX broker in Kingstown St. Vincent and the Grendadines. He is taking up the role of head of sales for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Prior to Ox Securities, Salah left a short tenure of 11 months at UK-based broker Valutrades Limited, where he held an analogous role since June 2021. Over the last 10 years, he has held a variety of sales positions with established brands within the foreign exchange industry.

His career encompasses other stops including working as head of Arabic office at Blackbull Markets, an Auckland-headquartered retail trading platform. Additionally, he served as a senior business associate with ATFX Global Markets (CY) Ltd.

Prior to that, a two year tenure as manager of middle east office at USGFX took Salah’s career between 2016 and 2018, preceded by nine months at RoboForex as sales team manager.

Commenting on the appointment, AssetsFX CEO said in a statement to FinanceFeeds:

Greetings, and congratulations on your new role! There is no one magic move or secret that creates victory, but lots of little things that, when added together, can make you victorious. I saw you work so hard every day to achieve this kind of accomplishment, and I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more. You set a fantastic example for everyone at the company. Hopefully an incredible journey you will start with us! Stay BOLD!

In his new position, Waleed will lead the sales team in charge of Middle East and Africa. His decade-long experience will be a great asset as AssetsFX aims to strengthen its position in different markets such as the Middle East and Africa. He brings with him a proven track record of success, and a comprehensive understanding of the needs of local customers.
