London and New York, 11 February 2014 – EBS, ICAP's market-leading electronic FX business, announces today that Darryl Hooker has joined the EBS Executive Management Team, effective immediately. Darryl is appointed Head of Strategic Currency Initiatives and will report to Gil Mandelzis, EBS’s Chief Executive Officer.

Based in London, Darryl has spent 15 years working with EBS and other ICAP subsidiaries and has extensive experience in both emerging markets and foreign exchange. Prior to his current position, Darryl was Head of Emerging and Growth Markets responsible for developing and implementing EBS strategy in key growth areas. He was previously Head of Emerging Markets Sales for the EBS Market and EBS Direct platforms, and served as a Public Affairs Committee member of the LBMA for five years. Earlier in his career he held a variety of senior positions with Reuters and M.W. Marshall in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Africa, the Middle East and the United Kingdom.

Darryl has also played a vital role in establishing and growing EBS’s presence in Russia. In 2007 he established and now chairs the International Ruble Settlement Forum, which is held twice annually in the alternating host cities, Moscow and London.

Darryl Hooker said: “We have been making great progress at EBS around multiple new initiatives and I am proud and delighted to join the executive team at such an exciting time for EBS. I am thrilled to be taking on this leadership role within EBS and am looking forward to working closely with the rest of the EBS team as we continue to develop new initiatives and add products for new currencies.”

Gil Mandelzis said: “Darryl has been successfully leading several of our strategic initiatives, most notably our great success with the Ruble. His leadership within the firm is tremendously valued and his energy, enthusiasm and knowledge will be an essential factor as we continue to deliver innovative solutions to the FX industry.”
