IG Group appoints Verifone exec June Felix as new CEO

(Sharecast News) - Online trading platform IG Group has appointed former Verifone executive June Felix as its new chief executive officer with immediate effect.
Felix was president of Verifone Europe and Russia until the recent sale of Verifone Inc. Prior to that, she held various executive management positions at a number of large multinational businesses, including Citibank and IBM.

She also worked as a strategy consultant at Booz, Allen & Hamilton, in strategy roles at Chase Manhattan Bank and as CEO of risk management technology firm Certco.

Felix, who will be IG's first female CEO, has been a non-executive director of the group since September 2015.

Chairman Andy Green said: "She brings to the role over 25 years' experience in both the finance and digital technology sectors, and she has a deep understanding of our business.

"June has a strong track record in strategy and product innovation and has successfully developed businesses of varying scales in the USA, Asia and Europe. Her broad experience makes her ideally suited to take IG forward."

Felix said: "I am honoured to be asked to lead a business with such tremendous people and technology and with such a strong client centric culture. The group's business is well positioned to continue to successfully navigate the impact of regulatory change and I am excited about working closely with the highly experienced executive team at IG in the continued delivery of that programme.

"Drawing on my experience of financial services firms globally, I look forward to leading the evolution of the Group's strategy to deliver sustainable growth and attractive shareholder returns."
