FNG Exclusive… FNG has learned that Advanced Markets executive Lynn Zhou has resigned from the company. Ms. Zhou was Global Marketing Manager at the institutional FX liquidity and prime-of-prime services provider since 2019. We understand that she has joined another Boston based company outside the FX / fintech space called Compt, in a senior marketing role. Compt is a specialized HR services software company, providing employee stipend and rewards solutions.
Lynn Zhou’s departure from Advanced Markets marks the second such resignation in the past two months. As was also reported exclusively here at FNG in November, longtime Advanced Markets Global Head of Sales and Chief Revenue Officer Natallia Hunik left the company, later joining risk and compliance solutions provider CubeLogic.
FNG spoke with Anthony Brocco, CEO at Advanced Markets, who said:
“We’d like to thank Lynn for all her hard work and efforts within the marketing department that has led towards making Advanced Markets the success story it is today.”
