As the Head of Business Development MENA, my main focus will be on designing and implementing new business development strategies to establish long-term partnerships and to expand TFB’s presence in the Middle East & North Africa region further.”

Meanwhile, Ivan Egorov, the Global Head of Sales at Tools for Brokers, added: “Congratulations to Vahab on such a well-deserved promotion. He is one of the hardest working managers in Tools for Brokers, and, since joining the company in 2017, Vahab played a major role in expanding the company’s presence in the Middle East and developed strong relationships with many clients and partners.

Established in 2009, Tools for Brokers provides software solutions to brokerage firms in the foreign exchange and cryptocurrency trading. The company is also a provider of risk management utilities such as a Broker Business Intelligence (BBI), which gives additional instruments for analysis and reporting across MT4/MT5 platforms.

Brokers can use the product to improve liquidly management while trading forex and cryptocurrencies.
