He will be responsible for the group’s Global Broking division in addition to his current responsibilities as head of TP Icap’s Energy & Commodities division, a position he has held for the past 12 years. TP Icap says two deputy heads, to be announced shortly, will support Polydor in leading and growing the E&C franchise.
