Equiti Group appoints Marta Ilbak to lead human resources amid global expansion
Equiti Group is behind some of the most progressive FX and CFD brands and prime brokerage providers in the industry.
Equiti Group has appointed Marta Ilbak as Global Head of Human Resources as she brings a wealth of experience in HR roles across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, as the multi asset brokerage firm furthers its expansion.
She succeeds Nigel Holmes, who has held the role of Global Head of HR since Equiti Group’s inception in early 2017. He has been appointed interim CEO of Equiti Capital UK ever since the former chief executive Brian Myers accepted the challenge of leading the Seychelles operation and the expansion into Africa.

Marta Ilbak joins Equiti from Deliveroo, a tech unicorn that operates an online food delivery service across the globe, including the UK, the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait.
At Deliveroo, she worked as Head of People and was mainly responsible for business expansion, organisational design, and talent evaluation and development programs for human capital.
She also managed a major redesign of HR processes and systems in the Middle East in preparation for the company’s IPO in April 2021.
Iskandar Najjar, Chief Executive Officer at Equiti Group, said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Marta and excited about the initiatives she will bring to Equiti Group. I’m looking forward to Marta’s contribution to our performance and delivery culture, the continued expansion of our offices and people, as well as growth of our talent development and management initiatives.”

My goal is to drive the company’s HR agenda with purpose and passion, develop career progression opportunities and create a great place to work based on integrity, agility, and the best global HR standards.”
With Marta Ilbak at the helm of Human Resources, Equiti Group will be able to accelerate the onboarding of talent as part of its ambitious plan to further grow its global footprint in Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
