Commenting on the appointment, Aquis Exchange CEO Alasdair Haynes said: "I am very happy to welcome David on-board to help us during the next phase of our development. I also want to take this opportunity to thank Jennifer for her brilliant contribution to Aquis Exchange and in particular for spearheading our efforts to secure FCA authorisation."
