At the 56th General Assembly in Cartagena on Thursday, the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) appointed three new officers of the Board, in line with the organisation’s customary geographical rotation of officers every two years.
The new officers of the Board are: Ms Chitra Ramkrishna, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, National Stock Exchange of India Limited (Chairperson), Dr Urs Rüegsegger, Group Chief Executive Officer, SIX (Vice Chairman) and Mr William Brodsky, Executive Chairman of the Board, Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), (Working Group Committee Chair).
Chitra said: “I am honoured to be confirmed as the WFE Chairperson, and look forward to working with my colleagues over my term. The WFE is the global voice of the exchange and CCP industry, and as such, represents the views and perspectives of some of the most systemically important Financial Market Infrastructures (FMIs) around the world. I therefore feel privileged to be part of the team helping to steward the organisation through its next phase of development.”
Nandini Sukumar, CEO, WFE, said: “Together we will continue to execute the WFE’s mandate of being a powerful and effective global advocate for the exchange cause. I look forward to the next year of activity, and working with the Board and our members to help forge consensus on issues that affect us all.”
