Welcoming the appointment, Martin Scheck, ICMA Chief Executive said: "Simon is admirably qualified to take on the chairman's role at this critical juncture, where actions under consideration by governments and regulators will define the financial markets for years to come. I have no doubt that he will drive forward our understanding and focus on our members' needs in the region."

He has over 30 years experience of debt capital markets, having spent 11 years as an issuer and 19 years on the investment banking side of the business.
