HOUSTON (August 21, 2019) – OTC Global Holdings (OTCGH), leading independent interdealer broker in over-the-counter commodities, today announced the addition of Aaron Easterling as Vice President of Business Development. Easterling, who brings more than 13 years of experience leading talent initiatives in global alternative investment management to the company, will be responsible for helping the firm identify and recruit premier candidates to OTCGH’s nearly 20 independent brokerage shops across the globe.

“At OTCGH we are focused on growing two things in order to continue succeeding, our people and technology resources,” said Javier Loya, OTCGH’s chairman and chief executive officer. “However, we fully realize that without great people the best technology in the world is useless. We’re excited to welcome a seasoned professional like Aaron to this team and know that he will only help us further enhance the quality of employees at this company as well as that this will lead to even better client service in the end.”

Prior to joining OTCGH, Easterling was the Chief Human Resource Officer and Portfolio Manager for Velocity Merchant Energy LP for more than 10 years. Easterling, who has a bachelor’s degree in business management from Southeastern Oklahoma State University, also previously served in various Talent Acquisition and Account Management roles with HBK Capital Management, Countrywide Financial and Management Alliance Group.

“While many companies search for a ‘silver bullet’ among the continued changes in the market, OTCGH knows that it starts with great people and is willing to invest in this belief by hiring the best to continue providing unparalleled customer service to its clients,” added Easterling.
