Marco Strimer, outgoing Chairman of the LME Clear Board said:
“It’s been a privilege to chair the LME Clear Board over the last three years, and to have served as an Independent Non-Executive Director for six years prior to that. I have no doubt that David will excel in this role given his track record of growth and his vast experience of capital markets, risk management and transformation, and I look forward to supporting him over the coming months as he transitions into the role.”
