Ram Vittal Appointed CEO of Marex Spectron North America

SPS Chair of the Board of Overseers Ram Vittal joins the leadership team of Marex Spectron, a leading global commodities firm.

Vittal will oversee Chicago-based Rosenthal Collins Group (RCG) and other Marex Spectron North America metals, energy and agricultural brokerage teams in New York, Houston, Connecticut and Calgary. He joins from his role as Managing Director and Head of Treasury Services Franchise Client Management at JP Morgan Chase, and prior to that, experience in leadership roles at Goldman Sachs' Investment Management and Investment Banking divisions.

"I am excited to join Marex Spectron as it enters the next phase of its global growth story and look forward to working with the leadership team to build market share and expand the business further in the US," said Vittal. 

"Ram is an impressive addition to our firm. His track record in investment banking, acquiring and growing businesses, coupled with his understanding of digital solutions and data analytics will be invaluable as we develop our North American business,” said Global CEO Ian Lowitt. "This is our fastest-growing region and our intention is to continue building our presence in the Americas to around half of our total revenues through organic expansion, new product development, and acquiring businesses where we see growth opportunities."
