Euronext announces latest leadership reshuffle

FICC head Paul Humphrey to step up as Euronext London CEO on interim basis.

Euronext has announced that its head of Fixed Income, Rates and FX (FICC), Paul Humphrey, has been appointed to lead its London business on an interim basis.

Humphrey, who will retain his FICC role, is due take over from Lee Hodgkinson who is leaving Euronext at the end of this month. He will also take on interim positions as head of global sales and a member of the managing board of Euronext.

In late January it was confirmed that Hodgkinson would leave the company after nine years with the UK arm of the exchange operator to take on the role of CEO of global proprietary trading firm, OSTC.

Euronext has also announced that Alain Courbebaisse, chief information and technology officer, has been appointed as chairman of the board of directors of FastMatch, replacing Hodgkinson.

Gil Mandelzis, CEO and founder of Capitolis, founder of Traiana and former CEO of EBS BrokerTec, has also been appointed as non-executive director of Euronext US.

“Those appointments reflect Euronext’s strong commitment to the development of the FICC business, both in Europe and in the United States,” said Euronext CEO, Stéphane Boujnah.

Boujnah recently sat down with The TRADE to discuss the exchange group’s acquisition activities, how it has prepared for Brexit and the future of clearing in London.
