Mike Dugdale Joins Gold-i’s Sales Team from PrimeXM

“Gold-i is an excellent organisation with significant growth potential and I am excited about playing a key role in its next growth phase. Gold-i’s technology stands out from its peers.” – Mike Dugdale, Gold-i

How much does trade execution really cost

With over 15 years’ experience in sales roles in the global financial markets industry and an in-depth understanding of the technology requirements of retail FX brokers, Mike is ideally placed to help Gold-i grow its business across key territories.

Mr Dugdale began his career in the IT department at ODL Securities reporting in to Tom Higgins, Gold-i’s founder and CEO, who was CTO for the firm.

Mike transitioned into an institutional sales role in October 2001 and, after five years at ODL, joined One Financial Markets as Head of Sales, working in London and Dubai. Subsequent sales roles include Head of Sales at BlackPearlFX and VP Sales at Prior FX before joining PrimeXM to focus on new business development, growing existing clients and exploring new markets.

Tom Higgins, CEO, Gold-i comments, “I have known Mike for many years – he’s a great personality with an in-depth understanding of our market and a proven track record in global sales. He’ll be an asset to the team and I’m really looking forward to working with him again.”

Mike Dugdale adds, “Gold-i is an excellent organisation with significant growth potential and I am excited about playing a key role in its next growth phase. Gold-i’s technology stands out from its peers. I’m particularly impressed by Gold-i Visual Edge – its capabilities in terms of risk management and reporting are critical for brokers in the current environment and I believe there’s a huge opportunity to increase sales.

“Tom has created an exceptional company, with great employee values and market leading products. It’s a company which I very much wanted to be part of.”

Mike Dugdale’s appointment in this newly created role follows a series of hires at Gold-i as it continues to expand its sales team. These include Ricky Strachan, who joined the firm in March from FinTech firm IRESS and Dan Picone, also from IRESS, who is heading up Gold-i’s new Sydney office.
