Kevin Wolf, CEO of Euronext FX and Euronext US, is leaving the group to pursue other external opportunities. Confirming his departure, the company says the managing board of Euronext “thanks him for his significant contribution” to the business.
Wolf joined Euronext just under five years ago from a short spell with Viable Markets, prior to which he spent almost six years with Eris Exchange. He started his career in banking with Lehman Brothers’ fixed income group over a seven-year spell, before moving to Bank of America for four years, where he was managing director, global capital markets. He is currently chair of the FX Professional Association.
Euronext says Chris Topple, head of foreign exchange and commodities, and CEO of Euronext London, will take over the role of CEO of Euronext FX “to ensure a smooth transition”. Topple joined the exchange group late in 2018, moving from Société Générale in London where he was co-head of prime clearing services. Prior to SocGen, Topple worked at Lehman Brothers/Nomura in prime brokerage sales, having moved to the US investment bank in mid-2005 from a 12-year stint at JP Morgan.
