New CEO for Euronext Lisbon et al

The Euronext Supervisory Board has approved unanimously the appointment of Maria João Borges Carioca Rodrigues as chief executive officer of Euronext Lisbon, CEO of Interbolsa and a member of the Managing Board of Euronext NV.

Assuming all relevant shareholder and regulatory approvals are obatined, she will join at some point in the next three months from Caixa Geral de Depósitos (CGD) where she was executive board member and head of marketing and IT/Operations, having had extensive experience in the European financial sector.

To ensure a smooth transition, Isabel Ucha, currently interim CEO of Euronext Lisbon, and Rui Matos, currently interim CEO of Interbolsa, will remain in these positions until Maria João CariocaRodrigues is officially appointed.

Earlier in the week, Euronext confirmed that the Portuguese Central Securities Depository Interbolsa, a subsidiary of Euronext Lisbon, had successfully completed the migration to TARGET2-Securities (T2S) as part of the second wave of planned migration.
