Danielle Ballardie is to take over as head of cash equities at Euronext while Adam Rose will become head of financial derivatives as part of several senior appointments made by the exchange.
Ballardie has led the sales and client coverage team in London for IntercontinentalExchange-owned Euronext since 2012. She had previously spent three years as director of electronic distribution at Barclays Capital for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, where she helped roll-out its electronic trading business in cash equities and established the bank’s broker crossing network.
London-based Ballardie also spent eight years at the London Stock Exchange in various roles focusing on product development, technology sales and preparing for the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive.
Rose is moving from ABN Amro, where he worked as head of sales and deputy head of global markets. He has also spent more than 20 years in sales and trading for derivatives at Goldman Sachs and Commerzbank. He has experience in both fixed income and equity derivatives. Rose will be based in Amsterdam.
Euronext has also named Olivier Raevel as head of commodities. Raevel previously worked for ABN Amro in London structuring OTC commodities. He will be based in Paris. All three appointments will report to Lee Hodgkinson, head of markets and global sales.
Meanwhile, newly launched exchange Aquis has hired David Attew as head of regulation. He joins from Euronext’s SmartPool. Attew will replace Jennifer Wood, who is expected to remain a consultant to Aquis Exchange following a period of maternity leave.
