Lester becomes group director of corporate strategy. He will also continue as chairman of FTSE's index service, as well as LSEG's Turquoise dark pool and Proquote market data offering.

Makepeace retains his position as FTSE CEO. The restructure comes almost a year after LSEG's announced full acquisition of FTSE, and follows a number of top-level appointments and reshuffles at the bourse in recent months.
