MONEY MARKET SALES
NEX MARKETS, EBS DIRECT
Tell us about your career at NEX
I started in the eFX distribution
team at EBS Direct, based in New
York. It was a great first step into
the world of foreign exchange,
trading, and international
business. I was then promoted
to team lead for Commonwealth
and Scandinavian currencies,
and moved to London. I'm now
a money market sales executive,
with responsibility to build
our European business.
What attracted you to NEX?
First, the opportunity. I wanted
to be part of a start-up and
learn how to build a business
from scratch. While NEX is a
mature business, EBS Direct
was a new initiative. Being
under the umbrella of a wellbranded organisation gave EBS
Direct leverage and support.
Secondly, the people. My
manager's enthusiasm made
it an easy decision to work for
her. I saw that same energy and
commitment throughout the team
and knew this was a group I'd
want to learn from and grow with.
What do you enjoy most about
working for NEX? The opportunity
to make an impact. Even during
my early days I had access to
senior management, who are open
to new ideas. Also, the ability
to help shape the culture of our
organisation by being a part of
the NEX Women Community.
