Noam Stiekema

Under 30 and moving up the ranks. We talk to Martins Skromans Head of Sales at OSYSTEMS to find out how he got into the industry and what he does daily.


In an industry so well established with roots in all four corners of the globe we took time to discuss what the industry will look like in 10 to 20 years from now.

Whilst we all share different views on where the industry will end up or what it will morph into, the fact is that we forget the many good folk working in the industry. Especially the younger generation that started at the bottom and worked their way up essentially dedicating their careers to fintech, trading and finance.

As is a FinanceFeeds tradition, we decided to celebrate these hard working individuals that have and very well may become the future industry leaders as they move up the ranks. So without further adieu, meet the industry’s future leaders (all under the age of 30).

What is your role at OSYSTEMS?

If you have to sum it up, my main role is to be there friend, listen carefully, and figure out how can we address the needs and wishes of our partners.

How many years have you been at OSYSTEMS?
