London Stock Exchange Group ('LSEG') is today pleased to announce two senior management appointments.

David Lester, currently Group Director of Information Services, becomes Group Director of Corporate Strategy. David will lead the development and implementation of core strategic and corporate growth initiatives across the company. David also continues as Chairman of Turquoise, FTSE and Proquote.

Following LSEG's December 2011 acquisition of FTSE, the high growth global index business, Mark Makepeace becomes Group Director of Information Services, incorporating both FTSE and the Group's information services businesses. Mark will report directly into Xavier Rolet, London Stock Exchange Group CEO and will join the Group ExCo. Mark will also remain CEO of FTSE.

Xavier Rolet, CEO at London Stock Exchange Group, said:

"I am delighted to announce these two key appointments today. David's deep understanding of our business, experience in growing and developing businesses, and in forming collaborative partnerships, will be deployed for the benefit of the whole company as we seek to continue to successfully execute upon our stated strategy.

"Mark's track record at FTSE speaks for itself, and I am very pleased to welcome him to the Group senior management team. Mark's international experience, expertise in building and growing successful innovative businesses and strong customer relationship management skills will be invaluable to the wider Group.

"London Stock Exchange Group is an increasingly diverse global business, operating in a dynamic and fast paced industry: today's appointments will further strengthen our senior leadership team as we continue to focus on strategic delivery, innovation, customer relationships and shareholder value."
