Alpari (US) Appoints Jermaine C. Harmon to Chief Executive Officer


Alpari (US), LLC (“Alpari”), a global provider of online foreign exchange and futures trading services, today announces the appointment of Jermaine C. Harmon to Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”). Harmon has been with Alpari for over two years in the role of Senior Vice President and Head of Institutional Sales for the company’s institutional group, QuantumFX. His new role will focus on managing the firm’s infrastructure while executing its strategy within the US foreign exchange and futures markets.

Harmon has over 12 years of industry experience consisting of strategic management of FX industry operations, prime brokerage relationships, market analysis, and FX algorithmic and ECN trading. Previous to Alpari, as Vice President of Sales at State Street (Currenex), he played a pivotal role in the technological development, marketing and sales of company products and services. In his recent two years at Alpari, Harmon established the institutional trading desk and platform, QuantumFX, expanding the company’s market reach and broadening the suite of products available to clients.

As CEO, Harmon will oversee the day-to-day retail, B2B, and institutional business operations within the US forex and futures markets. His primary focus will be on driving Alpari’s core product offering within the MT4 retail space. He will also continue to manage the institutional group.

Daniel Skowronski, CEO of Alpari (UK), comments, “Jermaine has already achieved significant success establishing the QuantumFX business in the USA and has developed a strong strategic plan to deliver further growth over the next three years. His vast experience within the retail and institutional FX space coupled with his strong leadership skills made him a natural successor for the CEO position.”

    Well, after letting go on November 5th plenty KEY senior personnel in Alpari US group and completely getting rid of sales desk while leaving only 2 junior sales guys out of 12, yes you can appoint anyone to be the CEO of the “empty” company that doesn’t carry any value anymore! WHAT A SHAME!!!!
