Forex and CFD online trading platform Skilling continues its global expansion in 2020 by extending its physical presence to London, UK, with the appointment of David Berg as a new senior executive. David recently joined Skilling Group as the global sales director and is responsible for creating a global commercial customer-facing division for Skilling in the UK.
Pavel Spirin, CCO at Skilling Group, commented on the appointment, stating:
“London is a global financial center and a critical location for us in terms of growth and expansion. Not only does it give us access to the world’s most diverse talent pool, but it also positions us well for building key relationships in the industry with our customers, suppliers, and regulatory authorities. David is a key hire for us, and I am excited to see it through.”
Skilling has already obtained an FCA UK Branch authorization earlier this year to continue operating in the UK after Brexit. Initially, the company will open a representative office in London to accommodate its immediate hiring and strategic goals in 2020, with further evaluation to follow at the end of the year.
David joins Skilling with over 13 years of industry experience, having previously served in various senior sales and commercial roles at ActivTrades, ATFX, eToro, London Capital Group, among others.
“I am thrilled to join Skilling at such an exciting stage in the company’s growth cycle and look forward to driving the sales and commercial operations from London with new product offerings and initiatives,” David said, commenting on his new role at Skilling Group.
Established in 2016, Skilling holds CySEC and FSA Seychelles licenses and an FCA UK Branch authorization.
