Euronext Shuffles Technology, Operations Leadership Team as Dijsselhof Departs

COO Jos Dijsselhof to leave exchange operator at end of June; Alain Courbebaisse set to join as chief information and technology officer.

Jan Dijsselhof will leave Euronext at the end of June after three years with the company.

Euronext has announced a number of changes to its technology and operations leadership after confirming that Jos Dijsselhof, the firm's current chief operating officer, is to leave the exchange operator on June 30.

Dijsselhof joined Euronext in June 2014 following the organization’s IPO and was appointed as its interim chief executive a year later after the departure of Dominique Cerutti. Dijsselhof stepped aside as acting CEO in November 2015 with the arrival of current chief executive, Stéphane Boujnah, taking on the role of chief operating officer.

Societe Generale veteran Alain Courbebaisse is to join Euronext on June 7 as the organization’s chief information and technology officer, to help with the delivery of the exchange operator’s new trading platform, Optic. Courbebaisse has held a number of roles at Societe Generale over the past 18 years, most recently taking charge of the bank’s prime brokerage and clearing business line.

“As we deploy our Agility for Growth strategic plan, driven by IT projects and business initiatives, Alain will bring his long-term IT experience in the finance industry. He will be a significant asset in the successful delivery of Optiq, our new trading platform, and will be instrumental in preparing the next stages of Euronext’s infrastructure,” said Stéphane Boujnah, chief executive and chairman of Euronext. “On behalf of the managing board, I would like to thank Jos for his contribution to Euronext in building the fundamentals of our independent IT platform,”

Maurice van Tilburg, member of the managing board and CEO of Euronext Amsterdam, will become head of market operations in charge of Euronext Market Services.
