London Stock Exchange appoints Anna Manz as CFO

London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) will appoint Anna Manz as Chief Financial Officer and a member of the Board of LSEG later in the year.

Anna Manz is currently CFO and Executive Director of Johnson Matthey plc, leading the Finance, Procurement and IT functions. She will report to David Schwimmer, CEO of LSEG, and formally begins her role on 21 November.

Anna succeeds David Warren who announced in October 2019 his intention to retire from the Group and to step down from the Board by the end of 2020. David Warren will step down as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director when Anna starts, remaining with the Group until his retirement date of 24 June 2021 to ensure a seamless transition.

“We are delighted to welcome Anna to the Group. She brings deep financial and leadership experience from her career at major UK listed companies. She will play a central role as the Group continues to develop and grow,” said David Schwimmer.

“It has been a privilege to work with the outstanding team at London Stock Exchange Group. Over the past eight years, LSEG has transformed into the global financial markets infrastructure leader it is today. I wish everyone continued success,” commented David Warren.

“I’d like to record the Board’s gratitude to David Warren for his significant contribution and commitment to our Group during his tenure, both as CFO and as Interim CEO. David played a key role in the successful growth, diversification and global expansion of our business over the last eight years. We look forward to welcoming Anna to the Board,” added Don Robert, Chair of LSEG.
