Ruth Wandhöfer to Join the Board of LSEG in October
Wandhöfer’s position, on the other hand, will be effective from October 22, 2018. Her most recent position was at Citi where she was the Global Head of Regulatory & Market Strategy for Treasury and Trade Solutions.
At Citi, Wandhöfer spent more than a decade in various regulatory roles in the transaction services area. During her career, she has earned a wealth of knowledge in the fintech and RegTech sectors. For four years, Wandhöfer was a Policy Adviser on Securities Services and Payments at the European Banking Federation.
Commenting on the new additions, Donald Brydon, Chairman of LSEG plc, said: “on behalf of the Board, I would like to welcome Marshall Bailey and Ruth Wandhöfer to the Board. They both bring to the Group extensive experience of regulated global financial markets. Marshall’s knowledge, gained from Board and management positions in the UK and around the world, will allow him to offer valuable commercial and regulatory insight to LCH Group and LSEG.”
“Ruth’s background in regulatory and technology change within complex businesses will be of great benefit to the Group as we continue to develop our global business. I would like to thank Professor Lex Hoogduin for his commitment and significant contribution in his role as a Non-Executive Director of LSEG and as Chairman of LCH Group Limited over the past three years. I am pleased that the Group will continue to benefit from his experience as Chairman of LCH Ltd and LCH SA.”
