09.07.2016 By John D'Antona Editor, Traders Magazine

FIA.EPTA.org – Remco Lenterman has been appointed Chairman of the FIA European Principal Traders Association (FIA EPTA). He takes over from Mark Spanbroek, who takes on the role of Vice Chairman of the association.


Lenterman is returning to the role of Chairman, a position he held from 2011 to 2015, having recently been appointed Head of Global Business Development at Citadel Securities. He previously spent five years as Managing Director of IMC in Amsterdam before leaving in August 2015 to move to London with his family. During his absence from FIA EPTA’s Executive Committee, Lenterman has continued to make a significant contribution to the work of the association.


Mark Spanbroek, who has served as Acting Chairman of FIA EPTA since 2015, said: “The membership and I are very pleased to have Remco back as Chairman. He was there at FIA EPTA’s start and has been a great advocate for our industry. With Remco’s knowledge and experience, we will continue to reinforce the message that principal trading firms are a critical and consistent source of liquidity for the markets.”


Remco Lenterman said: “I strongly believe in the work of FIA EPTA, which continues to deliver significant benefits to its members as well as the markets. Principal trading firms provide important liquidity to the marketplace, which ensures the European capital markets operate efficiently and cost effectively for the benefit of all investors.  I want to thank Mark for his on-going stewardship of the organisation and I look forward to working together with our members and stakeholders to ensure we have an appropriately calibrated regulatory framework that contributes to safe and efficient capital markets in Europe.”


Separately, Willem Sprenkeler retakes his position as a member of the FIA EPTA Executive Committee, having served as Vice Chairman for the past year. Sprenkeler is a Corporate Affairs Manager at Optiver and has more than fifteen years of experience in the finance industry.
