Additionally, he ventured into entrepreneurship by launching and managing his own recruitment firm for a couple of years, placing sales personnel within the FX, spread betting, and CFD sectors.

Chris spent the bulk of his career at FXCM where he climbed through the ranks in various roles. Initially, he served as the vice president of institutional sales and was later promoted to head of institutional partnerships for FX, CFDs, and spread betting.
