Investment management platform Charles River has appointed Caroline O’Shaughnessy, formerly of the London Stock Exchange (LSE), as head of EMEA, responsible for all business oversight within State Street Alpha, its global front- to back-office platform.

O’Shaughnessy was formerly chief client officer and global head of sales and marketing at the LSE’s Information Services Division, and group head of its Global Strategic Account Programme.

She has more than 25 years’ experience, including senior global commercial roles with the Depository Trust and Clearing Company, Thomson Reuters and Interactive Data.
