He has a vast knowledge of the industry, but his key skills lie in business and product development. He used this expertise to create Currency Online Group and has not looked back since.
Greg Collins was employed after 4 months of trading, as Head of Operations. Greg had previously worked with Paul and brought with him a huge understanding of the FX industry and excellent customer service skills.
Recently Paul was also joined by a former colleague and good friend James Colvin, whom himself has over 9 years’ experience of management with the FX industry and compliance.
Our newest member, Natasha Haywood, has been appointed for her skills in business development and knowledge in the International Payment sector.
Since its inception, COG has grown rapidly and the trend looks to continue as it looks to develop exciting new FX products in the near future. COG plans to be the number one place to come for all of your FX requirements.
