Spotex Onboards Former Coinbase Government as APAC Gross sales Head

Ivan Wong is appointed by Spotex as Managing Director and Head of Sales and Distribution for APAC.

APAC Head of Sales and Distribution Spotex LLC, a provider of expertise and foreign exchange ECN, has announced the hiring of Ivan Wong as Managing Director. He will report to John Miesner, CEO of Spotex, and have his headquarters located in Singapore.

“APAC continues to be a key region in both Foreign Exchange and Digital Assets,” Miesner stated. “Ivan’s extensive experience in FX and exposure to the digital asset market will be crucial to Spotex’s long-term growth objectives. Ivan’s addition to our team is very appreciated, and we are eager to increase our footprint in the Asia Pacific area.”

Wong joins Spotex in a new capacity with over ten years of expertise. He was the Head of APAC account management at Coinbase, a well-known American cryptocurrency exchange, before joining the Singaporean headquarters of the US-based technology company. There, he oversaw client support, client onboarding, and marketing in addition to executing and managing cross-selling and upselling campaigns of Coinbase product suites.

Wong was the Head of Greater China at BidFX for almost three years prior to his one-year employment at Coinbase. In that company, he oversaw a group of sales and account managers and was in charge of client retention and business development.

Wong started his career in the financial services sector at Barclays Capital, and according to his Linkedin page, he later went to OANDA Asia Pacific as a Product Specialist. He also held the position of Vice President of Sales at Integral Development Corporation and the EBS North Asia Sales position at ICAP for three years. He worked as a sales specialist at Deutsche Borse Group’s 360T and EBS from March 2020 until March 2016.

In a statement, Wong stated, “I’m thrilled to announce I have joined Spotex in building out the business and presence in APAC.” It is not only about breaking into new markets; it is also about realising this dynamic region’s unrealized potential. Being a part of Spotex’s path towards limitless opportunities and expansion excites me.”
