Exclusive: M4Markets marketing heads Marilena Iakovou and Mariliza Karrera leave for Doo Group
FNG Exclusive… FNG has learned that experienced FX industry marketing executives Marilena Iakovou (pictured above) and Mariliza Karrera have joined the Cyprus office of Retail FX and CFDs broker Doo Group, as the company’s new Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and Head of Marketing, respectively.
Marilena and Mariliza join Doo Group from M4Markets, where they worked together in similar roles for the past three years. The pair had come together to M4Markets from Tickmill in 2020 as the broker was launching, alongside a number of other Tickmill executives.
FNG had also exclusively reported over the past couple of months that M4Markets’ Global Head of Business Development Alexandra Dinu, and Chief Business Development Officer Nick Jay, had both left M4Markets. Another M4Markets executive, Vong Andreou, also recently joined Doo Group in a business development role.
Doo Group, on the other hand, has been on a hiring spree and staffing up in particular in Cyprus, where the company recently added experienced FX human resources and recruiting executive Anca Ioana Ionescu as Head of Human Resources Europe.
The Doo Group, which is an official sponsor of Manchester United, operates offshore Retail FX/CFDs broker Doo Prime (domiciled in Vanuatu) targeting mainly Chinese and APAC region traders, as well as an FCA licensed entity in the UK called Doo Clearing Limited. Apparently the company has plans to expand in the EU as well. Doo Group is controlled by Chinese national Junjie Chen.
