GHCO has named Alex Gladkow as CEO following the departure of Dan Izzo.

Formerly chief operating officer, Gladkow takes on the role almost a year after Mirae Asset Securities acquired the market maker in a $40m deal.

He will be responsible for leading the firm during its next period of growth as Mirae Global ETF looks to “elevate its market making presence” within European ETFs.

Gladkow joined Mirae in August 2022 as director of ETF sales and marketing. Prior to this, he spent almost nine years at Tradeweb, most recently based in New York for five years as the director of rates sales.

He was also vice president for ETF and equity derivative sales at the firm in London where he spent over three years.

He started his career at Morgan Stanley in 2007 as a trader assistant on the ETF desk before becoming an equity sales specialist at the business in 2011.

Gladkow commented: “I am honoured to have been asked to lead GHCO into this next phase of growth. The team has worked extremely hard in getting us to this point and I look forward to executing this opportunity.”
