360T, Deutsche Börse’s powerhouse for FX and independent global provider of a multi-bank, multi-asset trading platform, has appointed Minna Lehto Sousa as Head of Sales Nordic.

Ms. Lehto Sousa will be based in Stockholm and reports to Alfred Schorno, Global Head of Sales, 360T Group. She and her team are in charge of client acquisition in Northern Europe across all key focus segments – Corporates, Asset Managers and Bank-to-Bank business – as well as for delivering account management service for existing clients in that region.

Minna Lehto Sousa will join 360T from the National Bank of Abu Dhabi where she was Director Global Market Sales. In this role, she was responsible for managing the corporate FX flow desk and the e-FX sales. Prior to this, Lehto Sousa worked as Vice President e-FX Corporates Sales Asia at Deutsche Bank Singapore and Associate Director eCommerce Sales at Standard Chartered Bank in Dubai.

“Minna has a vast sales experience and a deep understanding of the global FX industry. We are very fortunate to have won her for our team, taking responsibility for further accelerating our client base growth”, says Alfred Schorno. “She has successfully managed numerous highly profitable e-FX sales efforts throughout her career.

With Minna’s wide range of experience across the financial services and global FX market and her dedicated focus on the two critical areas of client acquisition and client relationship management, she is well-positioned to help drive our regional expansion efforts and take over responsibility from Niklas Blide, who successfully led our Nordic business, but is retiring.”
