Burgundy, the new multilateral trading facility for mid-cap Nordic-listed securities, has appointed Olof Neiglick as CEO of the platform.
Neiglick will join Burgundy from private equity firm Catella Investments, where he was head of business development.
He has also held positions as execution vice president at the Stockholm Stock Exchange and CEO at Nordea Funds.
“It is a very exciting assignment to build and operate Burgundy, which will have a key role in reshaping the Nordic equities market,” said Neiglick, in a statement. “I am convinced that the timing for Burgundy is right, and that the consortium has great potential for strengthening the Nordic region as a financial hub.”
Burgundy is due to launch in the first half on 2009. Neiglick is expected to take up his role in September 2008.
