(Sharecast News) - Exchange services group Aquis Exchange said on Friday that Glenn Collinson had been appointed to succeed long-time chair Niki Beattie on 1 January 2022.
Collinson will replace Beattie, who took over the role in January 2013, following a search for a suitable successor to the position co-ordinated by senior independent director Richard Bennett, which considered both external and internal candidates for the role.

Collinson first joined the board of Aquis in March 2019 before transferring to the board of Aquis Stock Exchange in March 2020. He later re-joined the group's board on 17 September as an independent non-executive director.

Chief executive Alasdair Haynes said: "I am delighted that the board has chosen Glenn Collinson as Niki's successor. The last nine years have been a transformational period for Aquis Exchange and the board, under the leadership of Niki, has helped to lay strong foundations for the future.

"With Glenn's wealth of experience and his knowledge of the group, with previous stints on both the Aquis Exchange and AQSE boards, I am confident that his energy, perspective and commitment will support Aquis Exchange to go from strength to strength."

As of 0910 GMT, Aquis shares were 2.23% lower at 640.40p.
