Forex Club appoints new chief executive
Forex Club, a leading online retail FX broker, has unveiled a former private equity and Troika Dialog executive as its new CEO.
Vladimir Kozlov joins the company from Quadro Capital Partners, an independent private equity manager, where he was one the founding directors. Quadro acquired a minority stake in Russia-based Forex Club in March. Forex Club says Kozlovâ€™s appointment will strengthen its plans to become a full-scale trading and investment-management intermediary for retail and institutional clients.
Before joining Quadro in 2009, Kozlov was director of private equity at Troika Capital Partners, part of Russian investment bank Troika Dialog, which he joined in 2007. He also worked for McKinsey & Company, the international management consultancy, for seven years.
Kozlov, who is based in Moscow, succeeds Rafael Carrascosa, who has been appointed as adviser to Forex Clubâ€™s board of directors.
Pavel Teplukhin, Forex Club chairman and co-founder of Troika Dialog, welcomes Kozlovâ€™s appointment.
â€œVladimir has a substantial understanding of our business and a clear view of the development opportunities available to us in our competitive markets,â€ he says.
â€œCombined with his solid professional background and proven management skills, this knowledge will help him to execute the strategy of building Forex Club into a leading brokerage and investment company, and a trusted partner for retail and institutional clients in the Russian Federation and emerging markets.â€
