Ayhan Gurcuoglu has been appointed by Stater Global Markets as regional sales manager (Turkey). He joins from Sucden Financial, where he was also regional manager for Turkey.
In addition to three years at Sucden Financial, Gurcuoglo was at Sanko Securities for five years, where he progressed from financial dealer to foreign markets assistant manager and was, the firm says, instrumental in building up the organisation’s FX and CFD departments. His career history also includes working at Tera Brokers and at Raymond James in Turkey.
The appointment is the third newly created sales role announced by Stater over the last month. Max Moriarty, formerly at FIXI, was announced as the first member of Stater’s sales team, followed by Michael Davies who has joined as global head of sales, also from Sucden Financial.
“Turkey was a key market for me when I was at Citi and is an important region for Stater,” says Ramy Soliman, CEO, Stater Global Markets. “Ayhan is highly respected by banks and brokers in the region and has an in-depth understanding of their requirements and business culture. I believe we will benefit significantly from his experience and contacts.”
Gurcuoglu adds, “From my network, I believe there is a lot of business potential for Stater in Turkey, and I feel confident that Stater’s bespoke solutions and transparency meet the exact needs of brokers and banks in the region.”
