Former FastMatch sales director Andrew Gibson embarks on yet another new position, this time for Russian institutional firm BCS Prime

After six months at FastMatch as Sales Director, ten months at TradAir and less than a year as head of his own FX industry consultancy, Andrew Gibson has joined Russian institutional firm BCS Financial in Moscow.

In October last year, Andrew Gibson left institutional FX technology provider TradAir to found an all new FX consultancy which was launched on October 21 this year under the name SGB BV, based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Just one month later, he joined Prominent North American electronic communication network (ECN) for FX trading FastMatch, which is 35% owned by FXCM, as Sales Director, a tenure which lasted just six months.

Now, Mr. Gibson has begun yet another new position, this time at BCS Financial Group in Moscow.

BCS Financial Group is a large firm which provides many services from investment banking to specialist technology, as well as institutional services such as prime brokerage.

Mr. Gibson commenced his role with the company this week in the capacity of Project Manager.

Prior to joining FastMatch and to setting up his own consultancy to the FX industry in late 2015, Mr. Gibson joined TradAir in January 2015 as Global Sales Director from Dutch financial giant ABN Amro Clearing Bank NV, where he was Sales Manager of FX Products, responsible for FX clearing services, strategy and sales.

Preceding his six and a half year tenure at ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Mr. Gibson spent four years at Fortis Bank Global Cleaing NV in the Netherlands, where he was Sales Manager for FX Products.

In the middle of the last decade, Mr. Gibson was Sales Manager at ForexManage Ltd, responsible for software sales between January 2002 and July 2007, having joined the company from Qanat Ltd where he spent 2 years in software sales.

Mr. Gibson’s commercial experience in the FX industry spans across thirty years, with a two year stint at TraderTools in 1998 having been preceded by eleven years as a Futures Broker and Account Executive at Refco, a position which he assumed in 1986.
