People moves: Take it to the FX Bridge
Serial entrepreneur and FX technology pioneer Farid Naib has joined the board of technology provider FX Bridge. Naib is one of the industry’s most colourful characters; he initially forged a career providing lighting for music acts, including BB King, Allman brother Greg, The Police and The Sex Pistols, who were touring the southern United States in the 1970s. After selling his company and going to university, Naib later went on to found FNX Solutions, which he has sold at least twice.
“We are pleased to welcome Farid to our board,” says Steve Reich, FX Bridge’s chief executive. “With his long experience and record of successful technology innovation, Farid will be an invaluable advisor to the firm as we work with leading brokers to develop and launch cash foreign exchange options trading for individual traders globally.”
