Julian Elliott will step down from his position after 11 years at the helm of Gold-i’s commercial affairs to pursue new opportunities.

During this stint, the long-time serving executive worked his way up through several senior roles with the trading systems integration specialist for the financial services ‎industry, culminating with the position of Chief Commercial Officer.

“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.

Originally appointed as Operations Manager in 2010, Julian 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.

“I would like to thank Tom Higgins for all the opportunities he has given me, I am really proud to be leaving the company in a very healthy financial position with an array of new and exciting revenue streams and I wish Tom and the whole team at Gold-i all the best for the future,” he added.

Prior to joining Gold-i, Elliott was a QA Team Lead at Princeton Financial Systems and Test Analyst at HFC Bank, part of a career dating back to 2003.

His departure comes amidst a transition period at Gold-i which saw a number of executive reshuffles and new projects in recent months.

Last week, the UK-based FinTech company parted ways with its marketing executive Grace Butler. Butler joined the trading tech company as Marketing Administrator back in August 2020.

Meanwhile, Gold-i has 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.
