Seoul; 22, December 2015: Benckiser Roth, an Introducing Broker handling all commodities, futures and options on futures contracts traded on all the major futures exchanges, announced the appointment of industry veteran MichaelLinn Hon, 45, as Senior Vice President and Head of Global Markets at its Seoul-based Benckiser Roth. Linn Hon has spent his entire career in futures, most recently as Executive Director and Head of Exchange-Traded Commodities for Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA)
Richard Man-kuen, CEO for Benckiser Roth said: "We are thrilled to bring Michael on board. He has commanded great respect in the industry, not only for his wealth of experience, breadth of knowledge and expertise across products, but for the way he manages people and conducts client business. We believe he will be a terrific asset as we continue to grow throughout the region while staying true to the culture that has made Benckiser Roth so successful."
Linn Hon said: "I chose Benckiser Roth because of the firm’s deep understanding of the commodities and futures industry and its unparalleled respect for clients and staff. I have found the firm’s go-forward mentality and determination to grow in the region refreshing — particularly at a time when other firms, faced with regulatory and business challenges, have demonstrated a declining commitment to futures."
Linn Hon began his career in 1997 as a clerk and then broker and trader on the floor of the Commodities and Futures Exchange and then working for different top commodity brokers.
