Madley Capital Management to Recruit Michael Stricklin as Head of Currency Trading Department
London, United Kingdom, September 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Mr. Stricklin (formally of ABN AMRO) will be taking on the head managerial roll at Madley Capital Management’s currency trading department in October 2013. Mr. Stricklin will be joining the UK commodity brokerage company after a seven year spell at ABN AMRO. Madley Capital Management has recruited a number of key industry staff this year and this is the latest announcement from the company in regards to its plans to expand its operations. Although mainly known for trading energies, metals and agricultural products, Madley Capital Management have been steadily gaining ground over the past few years within the currency sector and this looks to be another strategic move in the company’s aggressive growth plans.
Mr. Charles Bench from Madley Capital Management’s board of executives said “We are very pleased about the prospect of Michael Stricklin joining our team October. It’s a huge step for Michael to make such a transition but I feel he’ll perform very well for us in this area of our business. Admittedly as a company our focus is more on hard-line commodities trading rather than the forex markets, however the currency trading arm of our business is something we have been looking at strengthening for a long while now. Michael has a built a great reputation for himself within the relatively short period of time he has spent at ABN AMRO, and we hope he will achieve the same kind of success and recognition with us when he joins in October. I have no doubt that Michael will prove to be a valuable asset to our team and lead our currency trading department to a new level in 2014.”
Mr. Stricklin said, “I’m very grateful to Madley Capital Management to bring this opportunity to me and I am totally committed to making a great success out of this situation. I have to admit that leaving ABN after seven years of service wasn’t an easy decision to make, but ultimately I believe now is the time to move on and I see no better place to move to than Madley Capital Management. Over the years I’ve worked on various projects in conjunction with some of the staff at Madley; however I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of the team and to getting things off to a flying start.”
A spokesperson from Madley Capital Management later added that more announcements regarding the company’s workforce expansion will be released within the coming weeks.
