Equiti Group appoints Brian Myers as CEO of Equiti Brokerage (Seychelles) and CEO for Africa
Until now, Brian Myers was CEO of Equiti Capital (UK), where he oversaw the FCA-regulated operation for three years.
Equiti Group has taken another step as it expands its footprint across the globe. The company has announced several changes to its senior management at Equiti Capital (UK) and Equiti Brokerage (Seychelles).
The Seychelles operation will be led by Brian Myers, who is taking on the role of Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Myers is an industry veteran with a 15-year career in the sector, having held various positions at such brokerages as FXCM, OANDA, GKFX and SVS Securities.
Until now, Brian Myers was CEO of Equiti Capital (UK), where he oversaw the FCA-regulated operation for three years, also holding a seat in the Board of Directors, including Executive Chairman from 2018 to 2020.
Besides the new leading role at Equiti Brokerage (Seychelles) to support Equiti Group’s global growth strategy, Mr. Myers was appointed Chief Executive Officer for Africa, where he will implement the group’s strategic business plan for the continent.
As Brian Myers steps down from the UK operation to embark on his new challenge, Nigel Holmes was appointed interim CEO for Equiti Capital (UK). Mr. Holmes has been a director and board member of Equiti Capital (UK) since March 2018.
These changes are subject to the approval of the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK and the Financial Services Authority in the Seychelles.
Iskandar Najjar, CEO at Equiti Group, commented: “The Group is very appreciative of Brian’s contributions to date and now looks forward to seeing his experience and talents applied in helping the Group to quickly and successfully expand its African footprint including assuming the role of CEO for our new entity Equiti Brokerage (Seychelles).
