New CFO leads changes at London Stock Exchange

A NEW CFO heads the list of senior management changes at the London Stock Exchange.

David Warren will take on the CFO role from 2 July, succeeding Doug Webb.

Webb, who leaves the company on 31 July, had joined in 2008. “Doug’s strong risk and balance sheet management skills and financial oversight of Group acquisitions have been of immense value to the organisation,” said the LSE in its stock exchange statement.
