FairMarkets’ CEO James O’Neill Moves to BlueBerry Markets
In a significant shift in the Forex industry, Blueberry Markets, an Australian Retail FX and CFDs broker, has announced the appointment of James O’Neill, the former Chief Executive Officer of FairMarkets, to a senior executive position within their company.
James O’Neill is known for his extensive experience in the financial markets, having served at FairMarkets Trading Pty Ltd, an Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) regulated firm. His career with FairMarkets spanned over eight years, beginning as Executive Director in 2015. He was appointed CEO in 2020, before returning to his role as Executive Director from 2021 until his recent move in 2023.
The transition comes after FairMarkets was integrated into the Turkish brokerage group GKFX, which has now become part of Trive, signaling a broader consolidation trend in the industry.
In a recent LinkedIn announcement, O’Neill expressed his enthusiasm about joining Blueberry Markets, commending the firm’s remarkable growth and vibrant company culture: “Excited to announce that I am now a Blueberrian! For the last 7 years, I’ve watched the incredible and exponential journey of Blueberry Markets as an outsider with equal measure of admiration and envy. Day 1 and what is already apparent is the great culture that has incubated this great company. Looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and joining such a high-performing team!”
Founded in 2016, Blueberry Markets has quickly established itself as a significant player in the trading sector under the direction of Founder and Managing Director, Dean Hyde, who has a noteworthy tenure in the industry with previous roles at other Australian brokers, including Axi. While Blueberry Markets Pty Ltd operates under ACY Securities Pty Ltd’s ASIC license by introducing clients to them, its growth trajectory has been noteworthy.
