Michael Kamerman spent over 15 years at FXCM before being appointed CEO of Skilling Group
The Skilling Group has announced that industry veteran Michael Kamerman has been appointed CEO of the fast-growing fintech brand.
Michael joins Skilling with over 15 years’ experience at leading competitor, FXCM, and with the remit of securing Skilling’s place as a leading provider of FX and CFD services to a global client base.
The announcement is the latest in a series of significant milestones for Skilling. In the past ten months Skilling has launched the hugely popular Metatrader 4 platform, obtained a regulatory licence in Seychelles, received branch authorisation from the UK’s FCA, and secured partnerships with Premier League football club Aston Villa, and global chess superstar Magnus Carlsen.
This is the second high profile appointment made in the last two weeks by the company, as IG Group senior SEO specialist Irene Castenada joined the company and is now responsible for their online strategy.
Mr. Kamerman commented, “The combination of talent and ambition is a powerful thing, which is why I joined Skilling. I look forward to contributing to the growth of the team and leading the Group into a new stage of strategic development.”
Co-founder of Skilling and previous CEO André Lavold has said, “The appointment of a new CEO is something we did with the utmost care ensuring that the person not only has the experience but also is a great culture fit. We are very excited to have Michael on board. His extensive experience and vision for Skilling has continually impressed us.”
Mr. Lavold will remain actively involved in the business while Mr. Kamerman transitions into the new role effective immediately.
