The Channel Islands Securities Exchange (CISE) has appointed Fiona Le Poidevin as its new Chief Executive.
Miss Le Poidevin will join at the start of next year following her time as Chief Executive at Guernsey Finance – the promotional agency for the Island’s finance industry.
Jon Moulton, Chairman of the CISE, said: “I am delighted that Fiona has decided to join us as Chief Executive. She brings with her tremendous experience from a varied career in financial services and is extremely well respected within the industry in the Channel Islands. She will be instrumental in helping us drive forward the new exchange so that not only is it fit for purpose but it has an offering which is attractive to clients and their advisers in the marketplace of today and tomorrow.”
At the end of last year, the Channel Islands Stock Exchange LBG (CISX) was restructured by a scheme of arrangement. It created the CISE, which is responsible for the day to day administration and marketing operations of the exchange and is the parent company of the Channel Islands Securities Exchange Authority Limited (CISEA), where there is responsibility for operating and regulating the exchange.
Diana Thompson is the Chief Executive of the CISEA and Miss Le Poidevin will join as Chief Executive of the CISE.
Miss Le Poidevin said: “I am very much looking forward to joining the CISE at the start of 2015. It promises to be a very challenging but exciting role and one which I believe is important for the whole of the financial services community in the Channel Islands. There is enormous potential within the new exchange and I look forward to unlocking it in conjunction with Jon, the other directors and the rest of the team.”
Previously a Senior Tax Manager with a ‘Big Four’ accountancy firm, Miss Le Poidevin has 16 years’ experience working in financial services in both the UK and Guernsey. She is a Chartered Accountant, a Member of the Institute of Directors and holds the Institute of Directors’ Diploma in Company Direction.
