Multi-regulated forex broker AvaTrade has named Alfonso Franco as its newest Marketing Director for its Spanish operation, effective from September 2016.
With an extensive background in Spain’s financial industry, Alfonso will be responsible for leading the strategic plan for different marketing activities that the company develops in Spain as well as for studying and implementing new growth opportunities in the country.
Prior to joining AvaTrade, Mr. Franco spent more than five years as the Director of Spain at the FCA-regulated forex company Admiral Markets Group. Mr. Franco’s career has encompassed other senior roles including Financial Advisor at AXA Ibercapital and General Director at Talasso Patrimonios (Grupo AFI).
While not currently known as a big player in Spain, the local presence and hiring of a domestic industry veteran is expected to make it easier for AvaTrade to both market to and service customers.
