Forest Park FX Hires Former FXCM VP Marco Sierra as its New Director of Latin American Sales

Sierra will lead Forest Park FX’s expansion in the region and forge new B2C and B2B relationships from the company’s new New York office location

Global FX introducing broker Forest Park FX has added another industry veteran to its ever-growing team with the addition of Marco Sierra. Sierra previously served as Vice President of Latin American Sales for FXCM and, most recently, as Chief Business Development Officer for MARCFintech.

Forest Park FX CEO Justin D. Hertzberg, Esq. commented, “Our success and growth as a leading FX introducing broker is a direct result of hiring the best people. And Marco is one of the best.

His experience in building business in Latin America coupled with his comprehensive understanding of the FX industry, extensive network and reputation, is second-to-none. He will undoubtedly open new doors for Forest Park FX in the region that were previously closed due to language and cultural barriers.”

From Forest Park FX’s newly opened New York office, Sierra will develop relationships with retail traders, institutional partners and FX service providers in the region and deliver the custom brokerage, service and coding solutions for which Forest Park FX is known.

When asked about joining Forest Park FX, Sierra stated that, “I am extremely excited to be working with another industry leader in Forest Park FX. Their broker agnostic platform and high-touch service model are a rarity in the FX industry and it is exactly what Latin American traders are seeking. I look forward to meeting the needs of these traders and helping grow Forest Park FX’s brand in the process.”
