Bermuda’s representation on the board of the World Federation of Exchanges has been extended to a second-term.
Greg Wojciechowski, president and chief executive officer of the Bermuda Stock Exchange has been elected to the board for a three-year term. He is a director the America’s region.
He is one of four directors elected to the board at the 59th general assembly of the WFE in Singapore. The board of directors is 18-strong.
Mr Wojciechowski told The Royal Gazette: “This is a very solid accomplishment for the BSX and Bermuda as we have been recognised for our contribution to the WFE organisation in respect of our input on issues confronting the global exchange space.”
In a statement he also said: “Bermuda’s contribution was solidly recognised by the WFE global membership in their support of the re-election of the BSX to the board for a second term. The recognition of the BSX and, by extension, Bermuda and its commercial and regulatory infrastructure substantiates our ability to punch above our weight and the importance of our contributions to the global dialogue on issues that impact and confront our various industry segments.”
The other three people elected to the board with Mr Wojciechowski are Juan Pablo Cordoba, CEO of Bolsa de Valores de Colombia; Jiwon Jung, chairman and CEO of Korea Exchange; and Akira Kiyota, group CEO of Japan Exchange Group.
Nandini Sukumar, CEO of the World Federation of Exchanges, said: “We are pleased to welcome these directors to the WFE board. The WFE is privileged that its leadership team represents such a wide range of countries, markets and perspectives.
“It has never been more important for the WFE — the global trade association for the market infrastructure industry — to work as a collective force to maintain open, internationally coherent public markets.”
