On the heels of an earlier recommendation by Euronext’s Supervisory Board, the exchange has appointed Stéphane Boujnah as its newest Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Euronext N.V. and Chairman of the Managing Board, according to a Euronext statement.
He is slated to begin his appointment only in November, following shareholder approval. In the meantime, Jos Dijsselhof, Euronext’s Interim CEO will help manage the role until a transition is formally culminated.
Mr. Boujnah joins Euronext from Santander Global Banking and Markets having served as its Head of France & Benelux, dating back to 2010 – more recently he also held the role of Head of Continental Europe since mid 2014. He has garnered extensive experience across a plethora of financial markets, namely in European corporates.
