United Fintech, the venture launched by Christian Frahm last November, has strengthened its team further by adding Jeremey Gzaiel to the London-based team as a Senior Sales Executive. He will focus on growing the firm’s business in the French-speaking territories.
His primary role in the company will be to grow its French-speaking client base, including insurance companies, pension funds, hedge funds and asset managers.
Gzaiel joined the early-stage venture from JPMorgan, where he oversaw forex and exotic equity derivatives sales for 4 years and 5 months, according to his Linkedin profile. Before that, he was with the London office of Commerzbank AG for almost two years in the role of Cross Asset Solutions Sales.
He is one of the many people the company has hired in recent months for its expansion into several global markets. The company has now more than 70 employees in its offices in London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Romania and the United States.
“Jeremy is another great hire for United Fintech as we continue to assemble a world-class sales team,” said Tom Robinson, Partner and Head of Sales at United Fintech. “His experience, relevant skills and multi-lingual capabilities will be a real asset to the organization, and we are delighted to welcome Jeremy to our EMEA Sales Team.”
Shaping Fintech Startups
Frahm, who is known for founding the CFH Group, is now acquiring stakes in small and mid-sized fintech startups and scaling them. As the company elaborated earlier, the deals will primarily focus on startups with products for capital markets.
It has already added two companies to its acquisition portfolio, a German fintech, TTMzero and a Danish fintech, NetDania.
“This is a fantastic career opportunity for me, and I am very excited to be joining the United Fintech team, leveraging my knowledge and contacts to help United Fintech grow,” said Gzaiel.
“From personal experience, I know this is ideal timing to be focusing on accelerating the digitization of banks and hedge funds. United Fintech’s vision is extremely powerful, providing financial institutions with access to a one-stop-shop of fintechs specializing in capital markets,” Gzaiel added.
