Rick Steves

OANDA has confirmed the news and will certainly be looking to fill his position at the helm of the EMEA operation as well as the Chief Revenue Officer for the global operation. 

David Hodge, who was with OANDA since May 2017, first as EMEA and Global CMO and then as Global Chief Revenue Officer and EMEA CEO, has resigned from the post.

The experienced Chief Executive Officer and Chief Marketing Officer entered the trading industry in 2008 by joining the ranks of IG Group, where he was Group Marketing Director and ran the global marketing operations for the portfolio of Group brands across 14 markets within the UK, Europe, APAC and Americas for three years.

Hodge then moved to Alpari (UK) in October 2011, first as Chief Marketing Officer, then Chief Operating Officer, only to become Chief Executive Officer for the remainer of his time at Alpari, which lasted three years and a half.

After nearly two years as Chief Commercial Officer at CMC Markets, David Hodge joined OANDA in 2017 to serve as the Chief Executive Officer for the EMEA region and lead the global marketing efforts. He became Global Chief Revenue Officer in May 2020.

David Hodge has decided to make a new move, which will only take effect in the Spring of next year. OANDA has confirmed the news and will certainly be looking to fill his position at the helm of the EMEA operation as well as the Chief Revenue Officer for the global operation.

“We can confirm that David Hodge has resigned from his position as Chief Revenue Officer at OANDA to pursue a new career opportunity in Spring 2022.  David is currently working through his agreed commitments.”

David Hodge led ambitous marketing campaigns for OANDA

During his time at OANDA, David Hodge led a strong marketing effort by launching an affiliate programme earlier this year, inviting partners to earn up to US$600 for every qualified trader they introduce to the firm from the emerging markets.

The FX and CFD broker aimed at further strengthening its relationships with respected partners from all over the world, providing access to a custom-designed portal and robust marketing tools, effectively enabling them to introduce OANDA to a broader audience while earning one of the highest commissions in the industry.

Under the OANDA programme, each partner is assigned a dedicated affiliate manager to provide platform support and advise on their digital presence.

Affiliates can also access an effective suite of marketing assets designed to help optimise conversion, from digital banner ads to high-performing landing pages, and track referrals on the firm’s advanced affiliate portal.

The FX broker has also recently upgraded its Advanced Trader loyalty program in the US to offer high-volume clients the option of cash rebates.

With an OANDA Advanced Trader account, clients can now earn rebates up to USD15 per million based on their deposits and monthly trading volumes.

Alternatively, traders can opt into OANDA’s core pricing model and choose to reduce their commission fees by up to USD15 per million instead, offering greater flexibility than ever before.
