Exclusive: Christopher Gore out as GO Markets CEO
FNG Exclusive… FNG has learned that longtime GO Markets CEO Christopher Gore (pictured above) has resigned his position with the company. GO Markets has yet to name a replacement for Mr. Gore.
Christopher Gore joined GO Markets more than a decade ago, in 2009, as a market analyst. He joined GO after serving as a forex market analyst for four years at IG Markets’ Australian operation. Mr. Gore worked his way up the ladder at GO Markets, being named a Director in 2013 and then promoted to CEO in 2017.
Established in 2006, Melbourne based GO Markets is one of the leading licensed Retail FX and CFD brokers in Australia. We reported a few weeks ago that GO Markets has expanded recently in the MENA region, and obtained a Broker License from the UAE Securities & Commodities Authority (SCA). GO Markets’ subsidiary GO Markets Ltd is licensed by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC).
Mr. Gore posted the following to social media today:
Today is my final day as CEO of GO Markets, so I thought it is perhaps appropriate that I give a quick shout-out to my team and acknowledge the help and support I’ve received over the last 11-years. We’ve grown a great business together. I look forward to seeing the company continue to grow from the sidelines.
We have received the following statement from GO Markets on the matter:
GO Markets announce departure of CEO, Christopher Gore
Global derivatives provider GO Markets has announced that Christopher Gore will depart as Chief Executive Officer.
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – 21 July 2020
After 4 years at the helm and over a decade at the firm, Christopher Gore departs formally today.
In a statement to staff, Director and CFO, Soyeb Rangwala thanked Christopher for his invaluable contribution to the company, “Chris has played a critical role in the growth, and success of GO Markets. His years of dedicated service to GO Markets involves many significant accomplishments and developments.”
On his departure, Christopher said the partnership has been long and rewarding.
“As a team, we’ve materially strengthened just about every business indicator over the last couple of years. I am proud to have presented the company over the years and I’ve made some life-long friends along the way. I think it’s the right time for me to handover and fly the GO Markets flag from the sidelines.”
“Receiving the No.1 ranking for customer services, among other accolades in the recent Investment Trends report is perhaps a parting gift for me. But I’ve got a feeling there’s more milestones to come.”
GO Markets will make a further announcement in due course relating to a new CEO.
