The search for her replacement is underway as the company received applications from six candidates, according to its job posting on Linkedin.

Butler joined the trading tech company as Marketing Administrator back in August 2020. She has previous experience from media planning and public relations agencies. On the whole, her career has predominately focused on the cyber-security space. She also offered marketing consultancy on a pro-bono basis for SME’s across a wide range of industries.

During her stint with Gold-i, Grace was the only in-house marketing executive at the UK-based firm. Per her Linkedin profile, she managed a wide range of projects including strategic digital campaign planning and implementation, content marketing, lead generation, social media and internal comms.

Gold-i has recently reinforced its operations with the addition of two newly-created development roles as part of its growth strategy. The company has also restructured its development team, promoting Dr Syed Ashar Akhtar to Head of Development, and Mohammed Alshanteer as Product Delivery Manager.

Both reporting to Gold-i’s CTO Chris James, Akhtar was tasked with the development of all products in the Gold-i portfolio. Mr Alshanteer, who has been with Gold-i since 2015, most recently as head of quality assurance, is responsible for managing the entire cycle of the company’s product suite.

Dr Syed has originally joined Gold-i as a developer back in 2014. During a seven-year tenure, he worked his way up through several senior roles with the firm, culminating with the position of Development Team Lead.

Gold-i said Akhtar played a key role in the development of its core products, and thus expects his elevation to be instrumental in accelerating momentum through 2021 and beyond. His newly created role follows the merge of two separate teams of in-house and remote developers, with an initial focus on developments to Crypto Switch 2.0™ and a new version of Matrix.

Gold-i’s Matrix provides a distribution channel of multi-asset class liquidity for a global network of brokers, prime brokers and hedge funds. Members are able to deliver their liquidity to other end-customers through Gold-i’s Matrix, as well as manage their trading book and customize their liquidity through different management tools.

Meanwhile, Mo Alshanteer joined the UK-headquartered firm six years ago and in his new role he will manage a team of three people, responsible for delivering new products and maintaining existing products.
