DMALINK, a provider of institutional FX trading services, has appointed Michael Idzkowski, who has been working with Abu Dhabi-headquartered broker, ADSS in relationship management since 2017, as Sales Director (EMEA).
Idzkowski brings nearly six years of experience as well as a wide network of connections across financial markets, business development knowledge, and management skillsets in addition to his industry insights.
Prior to DMALINK, Michael spent more than three years at ADSS, having originally joined the Middle East-focused broker as a Relationship Manager for institutional sales back in 2017. In this role, he was tasked with expanding the business in Eastern Europe and the Nordics through marketing strategies as well as engaging with private individuals, corporates and more, his LinkedIn states.
In February 2018, Idzkowski moved up the ADSS ladder to his most recent role as head of relationship management. Here, he managed a pipeline of global prospects as well as onboarded and acquired new clients.
Before he was at ADSS, Idzkowski worked at GlobalData Plc, a data and analytics company, for just over a year. During this time, he held two roles, firstly as the Business Development Manager when he joined initially in March 2016, and his final role with the company was Senior Business Development Manager at EMEA.
In August 2015, Idzkowski started working as head of sales for FX Capital, a Hedge Fund predominantly focusing on the FX space using advanced algorithmic strategies. There, he was based in London, and his role was largely based around raising the company’s asset under management through private and institutional investors.
“Michael Idzkowski brings seven years of industry-relevant experience in Foreign Exchange operations, and more broadly, an analytical background to benefit our clients,” said Manu Choudhary, CEO of DMALINK.
“I’m excited to be joining a business with ambitious growth plans coupled with a strong vision for the future of FX and RegTech. Services that are in the process of being rolled out will help data-centric banks communicate with regulators whilst traders can satisfy their best execution requirements, all in one place,” added Michael Idzkowski.
“Michael’s ability to serve client types ranging from individual investors to Tier 1 institutions strengthen our core competencies, relationships and transparency,” commented Michael Siwek, Founder and Global Head of eFX Sales.
