Michael has originally joined Hantec Markets as head of technology strategy back in September 2023. At the time, he ended a three-year tenure at London-headquartered INFINOX where he served in similar roles, preceded by a shorter stint as a project manager at ATFX UK.

Michael has strong experience and knowledge of Forex market operations and has held various positions at a few brokerage houses. He will be utilizing his experience at Hantec Markets to help increase the company’s client base through new technology upgrades.

The bulk of O’Sullivan’s career, which dates back to 2005, was spent at CMC Markets where he worked for more than 14 years. While there, he was tasked with partnerships, operations and implementations at the FCA regulated forex trading broker, which has been inducted into the FTSE 250.

During his long stint with CMC Markets, he helped the company develop and execute a universal sales strategy for its global operations apart from his other duties.

“[I have] senior financial trading experience across B2C, B2B, matrix-style and international organisations and [am] highly skilled at developing and managing strategic affiliate, franchisee and partnership distribution channels,” Michael says on his LinkedIn page.

Mr. O’Sullivan also has cross functional experience in product and project management and operations delivery combined with extensive background on software development, which gives him an edge in commercial solution-selling and financial trading technology implementation.

Hantec Markets is a subsidiary of Hantec Group and has been a forex trading service provider for more than two decades with offices in London, Sydney, Tokyo, Hong-Kong, Auckland, Dubai Mauritius and Lagos. At the end of 2017, Hantec acquired the retail client base of IKON Finance. In September 2017, the company signed a three-year agreement with a Premier League football club West Ham United as the official FX partner of the iconic east London team.
