Oanda has appointed Philip Holemans as chief financial officer with responsibility for optimising the firm’s financial performance.
With almost 20 years of experience in the financial services sector, Holemans is perhaps best known for his longstanding career at GE Capital, where he held CFO roles in the Benelux, Germany and Czechia. Having left GE, he assumed the role of CFO and vice chairman of the board with Moneta Money Bank, which is listed on the Prague stock exchange. He joins Oanda from WiZink, a private equity-owned Iberian digital bank where he was also chief financial officer.
“Philip brings with him significant expertise within the financial services industry. His in-depth knowledge of financial planning and analysis, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate development will be invaluable as we continue on our journey to becoming one of the largest multi-asset brokers in the world,” says Gavin Bambury, CEO of Oanda.
Holemans adds, “I’m very much looking forward to working with the Oanda team, helping to identify and implement new strategies that will continue to improve efficiencies, increase profitability and further drive the growth of the business.”
