Edgewater Markets has hired Paul Thomas and Charles Achoa to its sales team in the Americas as director of FX business development and head of sales for Brazil respectively.
Thomas joins from Maxxrader/BidFX, where he worked for just over five years in business development, having moved from an 18 months’ FX sales role at ED&F Mann. Prior to this Thomas worked for INTL FC Stone for one year in New York having transitioned from the banking industry, where he worked for Commerzbank, Citi, BNP Paribas and AIG over a 16-year period in FX sales.
Achoa, meanwhile, has been working in venture capital, having left the banking industry, where he worked for RBS and Credit Suisse in debt capital markets.
“Paul comes to our Connecticut headquarters with extensive industry knowledge, experience and a solid network of institutional investors, says Jose-Antonio Buenaño, head of South America at Edgewater. “He will be instrumental in further developing our roster of buy-side clients. Charles brings his impressive Wall Street career to our sales team in our São Paulo office as Brazil has become the most relevant market at this stage in our development of Edgewater’s Latam buildout.”
