TSX Group Inc. announced today the appointments of Rik Parkhill, Executive Vice President of TSX Group and President of TSX Markets, and Michael Ptasznik, Chief Financial Officer of TSX Group as interim Co-Chief Executives of the Corporation effective immediately.
TSX Group Chief Executive Officer Richard Nesbitt announced his resignation earlier today to accept a senior appointment at another financial services company. Mr. Nesbitt has agreed to remain with the organization in an advisory capacity, and as a member of the Board, until February 27, 2008. The Governance Committee of the Corporation will identify a permanent successor to Mr. Nesbitt. The Committee will begin its work immediately.
The interim arrangement announced today is designed to ensure complete consistency of service delivery and management of the Corporation until the Board can identify a permanent new chief executive officer. Mr. Wayne Fox, Chair of the Board, will maintain an active dialogue with the Co-Chief Executives during this time.
Mr. Nesbitt has been assisted by a seasoned and respected senior management team and the Board relies on their demonstrated experience and professional discipline. No changes in responsibilities are contemplated for members of the senior management team other than those created by today's appointments to these interim positions.
