Aquis Exchange, the subscriptions-based European equities exchange, today announced that it has expanded its Sales and Client Relationship Management (CRM) team and appointed Graham Dick to lead it.
Graham, who joins immediately, has until recently been involved with the Coba Project, an industry-led initiative to deliver a pan-European consolidated tape. Prior to that, Graham was head of business development at Chi-X Europe for six years and before that held senior roles at UBS and Credit Lyonnais.
Also joining the team, is Leila Mayet. Leila is currently part of the Nasdaq OMX sales team, based in London, and will join Aquis Exchange early in the New Year as a CRM executive. Leila began her career at BM&FBOVESPA and was educated at the University of Cape Town.
Graham and Leila will join current CRM executives Sakeena Lalljee and Pasquale Crispi.
Commenting on the appointments, Aquis Exchange CEO Alasdair Haynes said: "I am very pleased to be working with Graham again*. He brings with him a wealth of experience and contacts. I am confident that Graham and Leila will be instrumental in helping us build on our successful launch as we look to roll out the subscription pricing model to more and more users."
Graham Dick added: "I am looking forward to working with Aquis Exchange because I believe its innovative technology and pricing structures will provide customer choice, which will act as a catalyst for the whole market to grow."
