Cerutti out as Euronext appoints interim chief executive
Euronext has appointed Jos Dijsselhof as interim chief executive, accelerating its transition plan following the resignation of Dominique Cerutti at the end of last month. Cerutti will now leave immediately.
Pending the appointment of a new chief executive, Cerutti had been expected to remain in the role until July, when he takes up the position of chairman and chief executive at advanced engineering group Altran.
Rijnhard Van Tets, chairman of the Euronext’s supervisory board, said: “The board of Euronext decided, having accepted Dominique Cerutti’s resignation, that it would be in the best interests of all parties to act swiftly and to appoint a replacement. The board thanks Dominique for all he has done for the company over the last six years. Euronext has a clear strategy in place and it is vital that the momentum that has been created is not lost and that the company continues to execute on its plan as promised to its clients, shareholders and employees. Jos Dijsselhof has been a key player in Euronext’s strategy and growth since his arrival and we are confident that with him as the interim chief executive, supported by the strong managing board the company will remain on the same track and continue to grow value for shareholders.”
Dijsselhof joined Euronext as chief operating officer in 2014 from ANZ Bank where he was general manager for group hubs based in Singapore. He was responsible for the offshore services for banking operations, shared services, technology and corporate functions. He began his career at ABN Amro in 1993, where he managed derivatives, options operations and was appointed regional head of markets operations EMEA in 2000. Subsequently he was promoted to global head of market operations in 2003 and became the regional head of operations Asia Pacific in 2005. Following the Royal Bank of Scotland acquisition of ABN he became head of group operations Asia Pacific and managed the integration of ABN Amro into RBS.
