FOREIGN EXCHANGE settlement provider CLS Group has named Alexander Filshie as its new chief financial officer.

Filshie joins CLS from American Express, where he was international financial controller for Europe, Middle East, Asia, Canada and Latin America.

Prior to American Express, Filshie worked at Barclays as chief financial officer and head of strategy for Africa and the Middle East. He also worked for Standard Chartered in a number of finance functions and began his career at Deloitte Haskins & Sells and is a fellow of the ICAEW.

David Puth, chief executive of CLS, said Filshie's broad experience made him "the logical choice" to replace departing CFO Chris Power.

"With his track record of delivering financial leadership in the global banking and finance industry, Alexander will play an important role as CLS continues to meet the needs of an evolving FX marketplace." Puth said.

Power was appointed as CFO in 2008 and group finance director of the board in 2010.

He is part of the judging panel for our inaugural Business Finance Awards.
