There are many opportunities for a European exchange as successful and innovative as Euronext, and for that reason I am thrilled to be part of a team that is making a real difference in shaping the market structure going forward. I am also looking forward to contributing to the growth and the strong ambitions of Euronext, while continuing to focus on clients as a central tenet of our strategy.”
