Peter Leontiades, Studio Manager and Video Producer leaves easyMarkets after 8 years

Peter Leontiades, Studio Manager and Video Producer of 8 years, leaves retail Forex titans easyMarkets to enter the freelance world and set-up his own production house

Peter, brought from London in 2009 to join easyMarkets (formerly easy-forex), was responsible for all marketing activities generated in the easy-markets green-screen studio including videos and graphics relating to company videos, daily commentary, promotional videos, educational videos, product launches and much more.

He was one of the first talents of his kind, specialising in video production, to step foot on the island of Cyprus within the retail Forex industry. His experience extends from shooting footage, editing, motion graphics, stop frame animation and everything in between.

Prior to joining the FX vertical, Peter worked at Milo Creative in central London, who boast clients such as Universal, Disney, Channel 4 and the BBC. This was following his years at Kingston and Saint Martins Lane University of Art in London, whereby magazine ‘Design Week’ selected him as a ‘one to watch,’ as well as snapping up a few awards along the way.

Peter commented,I am grateful to have worked in the industry with such a solid and innovative company like easyMarkets. Video is leading the online world and with things changing every day, I want to be part of this world. I now look forward to establishing a production house and working on a wider range of video content. Expect some interesting projects to come and the launch of my new website.”
