Plato Partnership is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Wilcox as Chief Operating Officer (COO) following a comprehensive search process. Mark will commence his new duties with immediate effect and will report to Mike Bellaro, Plato Partnership CEO.

The appointment of a Plato Partnership COO closely follows the appointment of Mike Bellaro as CEO, completing the Partnership’s move to a dedicated leadership model.

This enhancement of organisational structure will facilitate a significant drive towards identifying key market issues, alongside opportunities to improve equity market structure and develop solutions in partnership with leading industry providers.

Mark joins from Delta Capita, a leading business and technology consulting and managed services provider specialising in the financial services sector.  Delta Capita will continue to maintain a close working relationship with Plato Partnership, providing advisory services and supporting the establishment of upcoming strategic initiatives.

Prior to Delta Capita, Mark held several senior roles in COO and Programme Management functions for Deutsche Global Markets and Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management.

Mark Wilcox, COO, Plato Partnership:

“I am delighted to have been appointed COO of Plato Partnership during an exciting phase of growth and development.

“The recent appointments of Mike Bellaro [CEO] and Christoph Hock [buy side co-chair], alongside Nej Djelal’s [sell side co-chair] continued focus and involvement, shows Plato’s clear commitment to deliver tangible benefits to the market. I believe we have a unique opportunity to shape the future of market structure using the significant knowledge and influence of our member firms and partnering with leading industry providers.

Mike Bellaro, CEO, Plato Partnership:

“Today it is my honour to announce that Mark will be formally joining Plato Partnership. Mark’s extensive industry expertise, renowned stewardship, and ability to deliver strategic objectives over many years makes him uniquely well-suited to the challenges of this role. 

“I would also like to thank Joe Channer and Delta Capita for supporting Mark in this opportunity and we look forward to their continued involvement with Plato Partnership in providing advisory services and helping establish and resource Plato initiatives.

Joe Channer, CEO, Delta Capita:

“On behalf of all at Delta Capita, I would like to congratulate Mark on his selection as COO to the Plato Partnership and wish him every success in the role.  His selection and release to the Partnership is a testament to Mark’s contribution as engagement lead for Plato whilst at Delta Capita and to the strength of our business partner relationship.  We look forward to working closely with Mike and Mark on future strategic Plato initiatives as the Partnership continues to help shape the future of equity market structure.
