Saxo Bank Appoints Tony Bainbridge as Head of Group Human Resources

HELLERUP, Denmark, January 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Saxo Bank, the online trading and investment specialist, is pleased to announce that it has appointed a new Head of Group HR, Tony Bainbridge.

Tony Bainbridge's appointment and position as part of the Executive Management Group underlines the importance placed by Saxo Bank on the ongoing development of its staff as it prepares for the next phase of business growth. He will relocate to Saxo Bank's headquarters in Copenhagen for the role and will be supported by Ditte Buchwald, recently appointed Deputy Head of HR.

This marks another senior appointment for Saxo Bank, which last month announced Matteo Cassina as Global Head of Institutional Business working out of London. According to Tony Bainbridge, this increasing internationalisation of the leadership team reflects the business' growing global presence and expansion into new markets.

"My aim is to reflect Saxo Bank's growing global presence and expansion into new markets in the leadership of the Bank. Matteo's appointment should of course also be seen in this light. Moreover, it's critical that each of the 1400 employees around the world specifically and individually contribute to Saxo Bank's overall goal to be the most professional and transparent facilitator of financial products and services in the global capital markets," Bainbridge said.

Tony Bainbridge joined Saxo Bank from Rexam Plastics, part of Rexam PLC, where he was HR Director. He has extensive experience across the consumer goods, manufacturing, technology and hospitality sectors, having also served as Global HR Director for CIBA Vision and Edwards High Vacuum. He has also served as Senior Vice President HR for EMEA for InterContinental Hotels Group. He has lived and worked in Switzerland, the US and Poland and also spent three years as Managing Director of the French business of CIBA Vision. His early career was spent at Mars and PepsiCo in both commercial and HR roles in the UK and continental Europe.

Tony holds a degree in economics, psychology and French from the University of Durham.
