Julian Elliott will be working with the EMEA team to further develop their retail broker business. Integral has recently announced a centrally cleared CFD platform utilizing FXCM’s Prime Brokerage service.

Integral Development Corp has hired Julian Elliott as Senior Product Director, Sales, where he will be in charge of assisting the EMEA sales team and advising on product development.

Julian Elliott joined Integral after three years and a half at Gold-i as Chief Commercial Officer, among other roles at FX, CFD, and Crypto technology solutions provider. In total, he spent just over 11 years at Gold-i, previously working in a Senior role in Operations.

He proved instrumental in running Gold-i’s client support system, handling the release of Gold-i products, and implementing procedures for enhancement and hot-fix life cycles.

Having built up the QA and support teams and overseen a number of client implementations, he was promoted to the role of Operations Director in 2016. There Julian was responsible for the day to day operations of the company, as well as taking on additional responsibilities including financial management and client account management.

Elliott left Gold-i in late October and his departure came amidst a transition period at Gold-i which saw a number of executive reshuffles and new projects in recent months. The UK-based FinTech company also parted ways with its marketing executive Grace Butler and promoted Syed Ashar Akhtar to Head of Development, and Mohammed Alshanteer to Product Delivery Manager.

“It is with a tinge of sadness that I announce today is my last day at Gold-i. It has been an amazing 11 years helping the company grow from start-up to a multi-national SME, but I feel the time has come to start a new adventure in my professional career,” Elliott shared on his Linkedin profile amid his departure from Gold-i.

Julian Elliott embraces his new challenge at Integral, based in London, in a pivotal moment for Integral, which has recently announced a centrally cleared CFD platform utilizing FXCM’s Prime Brokerage service and Integral’s technology.

Matthew Avery, Managing Director of EMEA for Integral, said: “We are delighted Julian has joined the EMEA team and look forward to the knowledge and experience he can bring to the team from working in the retail FX industry.”

Julian Elliott, Senior Product Director, Sales for Integral, commented: “I am delighted to be joining Integral Development Corporation and looking forward to working with the EMEA team to further develop their retail broker business.”

Integral’s Average Daily FX Volumes for October increased by almost 12.5% in September.
