Euronext N.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of IntercontinentalExchange Group (NYSE: ICE), today announced a series of management changes that will support and strengthen development in Europe.
The new senior management structure, according to Dominique Cerutti, Chief Executive of Euronext, "will accelerate our targeted growth opportunities in Europe by bringing outstanding additional talent to our leadership team as we address the rapidly changing and increasingly competitive global landscape."
Anthony Attia, formerly Senior Vice President and Chief of Staff to Dominique Cerutti, has been named CEO of Euronext Paris. This position is for the first time independent from the position of Euronext NV CEO, held by Mr.Cerutti, thereby strengthening the role of the Paris stock exchange.
Lee Hodgkinson, who until now has led NYSE Euronext Sales and Client Coverage, EMEA & APAC, has been appointed to head up Euronext's Markets and Global Sales teams, a newly created division aimed at combining the commercial activities of Euronext's markets business lines into a single unit. Mr. Hodgkinson will also be appointed as CEO of Euronext London once this company is granted a RIE status from FCA .
A Chief Operating Officer (COO) is currently being recruited.
These appointments will become effective upon regulatory approvals by relevant national authorities.
Amaury Dauge has been appointed Chief Financial Officer of the Euronext NV group. Mr. Dauge, who until now was Head of Corporate Planning and Analysis for NYSE Euronext, will be responsible for all aspects of finance, treasury and investor relations.
All four positions will report directly to Dominique Cerutti. Mr. Attia, Mr.Hodgkinson and the COO will have a seat on the Managing Board of Euronext NV after the separation of LIFFE has taken place and received regulatory non-objection. The Managing Board will henceforth consist of Dominique Cerutti as CEO, the still to be appointed COO, Lee Hodgkinson as Head of Euronext's Markets and Global Sales teams, Anthony Attia, CEO of Euronext Paris, Cees Vermaas, CEO of Euronext Amsterdam, Luis Laginha, CEO of Euronext Lisbobon and Vincent van Dessel, CEO of Euronext Brussels.
