Claudia Kerr has gone through many changes since joining ClientKnowledge, which was acquired by ICAP, which was renamed NEX Group, which was acquired by CME Group.

Euronext has appointed Claudia Kerr as Head of Business Management, Global Markets, based in London, where she will support the CEO of Euronext London & Head of Global Sales.

With over 10 years of business and operations management experience in financial services, Ms. Kerr has focused on business strategy and regulatory management by leading project programs and delivering complex mandates. .

This hands-on experience is the result of almost ten years as a Business Manager, Director (and Head of Business Operations, EBS eCommerce) in a company that has changed brand and ownership a lot over the past few years: from ICAP to NEX Group, then to CEM Group.

Previously, Ms. Kerr worked as an operations manager at ClientKnowledge, a company which was acquired by ICAP in 2012. While Claudia Kerr’s CV shows that she has worked at five different companies, the only change that is a real change in direction is this month’s to Euronext. .

Euronext recently made a high-profile announcement when Piero Novelli joined the exchange operator in February ahead of the acquisition of Borsa Italiana from LSEG.

The experience and skills he developed at UBS Investment Bank make him a perfect fit for Euronext, as the venue aims to complete a €4.3 billion acquisition of Borsa Italiana this year.

The proposed combination of Borsa Italiana and Euronext is expected to create a leading player in continental European capital markets. This transformational project would position the newly formed group to deliver on the ambition to further build the backbone of Europe’s Capital Markets Union, while supporting local economies.

Italy, through the Borsa Italiana, would become the largest revenue contributor to the enlarged Euronext group. As a new major country in the federal model of Euronext, Italy would be represented at the level of the Euronext governance group by Italian representatives, in the Reference Shareholders, the Supervisory Board, the Management Board and the College of Regulators overseeing the activities of the Euronext group.

The company reported better-than-expected annual revenue due to growth in revenue from listing, trading and clearing activities after some recent acquisitions.
