Aquis Exchange re-appoints Glenn Collinson to its Board
Exchange services group Aquis Exchange plc (LON:AQX) today announced the re-appointment of serial entrepreneur Glenn Collinson to its Board. Mr Collinson rejoins as an independent non-executive director (INED) as part of the succession planning for the Board.
He first joined the Company’s Board in March 2019 before transferring to the Board of Aquis Stock Exchange Limited (AQSE) in March 2020. Mr Collinson has now re-joined the board of Aquis Exchange PLC with immediate effect and has stepped down from AQSE to enable this move.
Mr Collinson started his career at Racal and worked for Motorola, Texas Instruments and Cambridge Consultants Ltd. before co-founding Cambridge Silicon Radio in 1998. There he served as an executive director and helped grow the company from a concept to a $3 billion market capitalisation entity in 2006 (as CSR Plc) and one of the biggest players in the Bluetooth market.
Since leaving CSR he has held a number of executive and non-executive directorships in UK and French companies – both public and private – that specialise in technology. He is a member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology and holds an MSc in electronics as well as an MBA from Cranfield University.
Commenting on the appointment, Niki Beattie, Chair of Aquis, said:
“We’re delighted that Glenn is re-joining the main Board. He has gathered considerable experience of the Company since joining as an INED in early 2019 and initially serving time on the main Board of Aquis prior to more recently serving on the board of Aquis Stock Exchange Limited. His energy, perspective and commitment bring great value to the Board.”
Glenn Collinson added:
“I am really excited to have the opportunity to re-join the main Board of Aquis Exchange PLC as it continues to lead the Company on its very successful journey.”
