Equities clearinghouse, European Central Counterparty N.V. (EuroCCP), announced on Thursday that it has appointed Cécile Nagel as Chief Executive Officer. Nagel joins the company from the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG).
The appointment of Nagel follows the announcement in November last year that the current CEO, Diana Chan, would hand over the management of the firm in 2018. According to the statement, Nagel will commence her role in September 2018.
Nagel joins EuroCCP with a long history at LSEG
Nagel joins the clearinghouse with more than a decade’s worth of experience in the finance industry. She joined LSEG in 2009 as Head of Strategic Planning and held the role for just over five years. In 2014, she then began working at LCH, LSEG’s multi-asset clearinghouse. Here she was Global Head of Equities and Commodities until 2017. Nagel’s most recent position at the exchange was Head of LSE Markets Global Product Development and LSE Exchange Traded Products.
