CMO Themis Christou Bids Farewell to The Trading Pit


The Trading Pit, a distinguished global multi-asset prop trading firm, faces another significant departure as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Themis Christou announces his resignation, following the recent exit​ of co-founder Christoph Radecker and Liechtenstein Office CEO Thomas Heyden.

Christou made his departure public on LinkedIn, stating: “After a challenging yet enlightening two years with The Trading Pit, I am pleased to announce that I am moving in a new direction.

“From the outset, my team and I built the brand from the ground up, pouring endless hours and weekends into laying the foundations and nurturing it to the stature it holds today. Though our quiet diligence and sacrifices often remained behind the scenes, the outcomes have spoken for themselves. I extend my deepest gratitude to my remarkable team for their unwavering support and extraordinary commitment.

“Looking ahead, I am thrilled to embark on an exciting new venture that promises not only to leverage my skills but also to set new standards in the industry. The details of this next chapter, which I will share soon, are poised to make a significant impact.”

Radecker, boasting over a decade of experience in marketing and management in the financial services sector, joined The Trading Pit as CMO in June 2022. His responsibilities included developing, overseeing, and executing the company’s marketing goals and objectives. Prior to this role, Radecker served as the Group Head of Marketing at Seychelles broker M4Markets for over a year.

From August 2016 to October 2020, he held multiple positions at Tickmill, a well-known broker, including Senior Marketing Specialist, Group Marketing Project Manager, Group Head of Marketing Projects, and a short-term interim CMO. In addition, he also worked in a marketing leadership position at Orbex, a global investment services company, for 8 months.
