OneRoyal Strengthens Its C-suite With Four Industry Professionals

In the strategic move, the broker, who holds CySec, ASIC, VFSC and FSA licenses, is bringing onboard Michael Karakatsianis for the position of the Group Chief Operating Officer. Prior to joining OneRoyal, Michalis had spent 3 years working as a COO for Skilling, and had worked for NAGA and FxPro before that.

OneRoyal’s new Chief Financial Officer, Stelios Christodoulou, is joining the team after spending more than 6 years as a CFO of FXPRIMUS. Stelios started his career with PWC, before switching over to forex and CFD firms, adding to over 15 years of industry experience.

As a Chief Marketing Officer, OneRoyal has tapped Sofia Mashovets, who left the position of CMO at Axiance in the fall 2021. Before spearheading the Axiance brand launch and leading the marketing team for a year, Sofia worked on a variety of fintech projects under the Axios Holding, as well as other blockchain and crypto projects, including PumaPay, one of the top ICOs in 2018.

For the Chief Technology Officer role OneRoyal tapped Panayiotis Annivas, who previously worked at TTCM Traders Trust, after holding C-level positions within the London Capital Group  and FXPro, bringing over a decade of technology experience.

Our newly hired professionals bring nearly 50 years’ of combined experience to OneRoyal as the broker gears up towards celebrating its 15 years of operation in 2022. The new hires join the Board of Executives who will have the authority to decide on the Company’s strategy.

“We have hired the new C-Level suite to help us implement our new vision and propel the company to the next level of success. As we celebrate our 15th anniversary this year, we look back on the success we have achieved, we reflect on where we could have done better, and set our sights on the next milestones” – says OneRoyal founder and Chairman Rayan Al Annan.

All new members of the team will be based in Cyprus, as OneRoyal is upgrading its Limassol office to transform it to the global headquarters of the retail arm of the business. The institutional arm of the firm will remain headquartered in Sydney, Australia, where the broker holds an ASIC licence.
