Global Reach Group, a leading provider of corporate and personal foreign exchange, has further bolstered its senior management team with its latest hire, Tim Rudman.

Tim joins as Chief Operating Officer, supporting the strategy of product, payment, and technology innovation across Europe, after spending almost 12 years at WorldFirst (part of Ant Financial), in roles such as the Head of Operations and Group COO.

Nicholas Fullerton, Chief Executive Officer at Global Reach Group, commented:

‘It is great that Tim has joined us in such a key role for GRG, it will help us further advance rapidly across a number of core areas due to his directly transferable skillset and experience.’

Tim is the latest appointment to the company’s executive management team, which has recently been augmented by a number of respected figures from the financial services industry. Alistair Seabright was appointed as Chairman in September 2019, alongside his role of Chairman of Alternative Investments at Octopus Capital.

Late 2019 saw the addition of Brett Flowers as Chief Financial Officer following on from his role as CFO at Mako and with experience at senior levels within Lloyds TSB and Barclays where he was Head of Group Financial Control. Ian Robinson also joined as Non-Executive Director alongside his role as Group Head of Audit at M&G prudential and with previous titles such as COO, Insurance at HSBC, and Group Finance and Risk Director at AXA as part of his extensive experience.

Tim Rudman, Chief Operating Officer at Global Reach Group, added:

‘Global Reach is an ambitious business showcasing rapid growth. I look forward to being part of the senior leadership team, where together we can continue to push the business forward to new heights, in an industry which is continually evolving.’

Nicholas Fullerton, one of the original co-founders of the Group, previously held the role of Chief Operating Officer at Global Reach Group, before being promoted to CEO in September 2019. Other long-standing members of the senior management team include Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, Millie Richardson, the former WorldFirst CCO; and Commercial Director, Leandra McPhillips, the former Marketing Director at CMC Markets.

In 2019, Global Reach Group achieved total transaction values in excess of £6 billion for more than 25,000 clients.
