FOREX specialist Caxton FX has appointed Trevor Price as its next chief financial officer.
The appointment is aimed at strengthening Caxton’s board in a bid to help stimulate the fintech company’s next phase of growth.
Price joins Caxton from card payments provider WEX, where was finance director. Prior to this, he was the VP of finance for money transfer company Western Union.
The company said the CFO’s prior experience and expertise in cards and international payments would be instrumental in helping Caxton enter its next stage of development.
Price joins as the company launches its new IT platform, creating a scalable growth engine across its markets.
“Growth will be my main focus at Caxton, and there are numerous opportunities for the business including enhanced product offerings, new market segments, acquisitions and platform development,” Price said.
“Trevor’s previous roles in sectors such as payments, technology and mobile, in both corporate and consumer markets, provide invaluable experience in Caxton’s core areas of focus,” Caxton CEO Rupert-Lee Browne said.
Trevor joins CEO and company directors Jane Emma-Peerless, Roger Alexander and Tim Cook on Caxton’s board.
