Continuing its expansion, Telekurs has hired several new people to its London sales force. Dan Haywood has joined the new business sales team as a sales manager. He was previously with Reuters, where he held a variety of posts in its enterprise solutions division in London.
Levent Mehmet has moved to the new business sales team to concentrate on real-time terminals for off-trading floor users and real-time market data feeds. He has been with Telekurs for three-and-a-half years, including a year running its Eurobond team as well as account management positions.
But not all is good news. Two of Telekurs’ recent hires unexpectedly resigned. Caroline O’Shaughnessy, business channel director, and Beatrice Stahaeli, head of key accounts, both left at the start of this month.
The company also recently celebrated the opening of Telekurs Financial (Ireland) Branch with a reception at the National Gallery of Ireland. The new Dublin-based office is to focus predominantly on fund administration and to provide a closer level of support for existing clients in the Irish market, as well as raising the profile of Telekurs in the Irish financial market. Eugen Niesper, CEO of Telekurs Financial welcomed more than 150 guests to the event.
