The London Stock Exchange Group (LON: LSEG ) announced on Monday that Charlie Walker has been appointed Deputy CEO of the London Stock Exchange plc. In his new role, Walker will continue to report to Julia Hoggett, CEO of LSE plc, and support the daily operation of the exchange while maintaining oversight of the group's primary markets business. His appointment is subject to regulatory non-objection.
Walker joined LSEG in January 2018 as head of equity and fixed income primary markets. He is a capital markets specialist with extensive experience in equity transactions, having previously worked within J.P. Morgan Cazenove's Equity Capital Markets team where he was responsible for originating and executing equity transactions that raised over £45 billion of equity capital across five continents on behalf of clients.
In recent months, Walker's promotion marks the second executive shift within the LSE. Michael Stanley was promoted to head of ETFs in July after serving more than a decade with the group.
In a statement, Julia Hoggett praised Walker's deep knowledge of capital markets and his contribution to the LSE over the past six years. She also expressed her excitement about their shared passion for ensuring efficient access to capital for companies throughout their lifecycle.
Michael Findlay, Chair of the London Stock Exchange plc, also welcomed Walker to the Board. He emphasized that Walker's expertise will be vital in strengthening LSE's position as a leading global exchange.
The London Stock Exchange remains an attractive venue for companies looking to list and raise capital, boasting unparalleled global reach with a deep pool of liquidity and international investors.
