Griebenow joins from parent company BATS Global Markets with immediate effect, and is responsible for all financial control and human resource functions at BATS Chi-X Europe, including financial planning and reporting.
She is based in London, reporting directly to CEO Mark Hemsley.
Most recently, Griebenow served as assistant controller at BATS Global Markets where she managed the daily operations of the company’s US accounting function. She joined BATS Global Markets in 2011 as a financial reporting specialist from global accounting firm EY (previously Ernst & Young), where she held the position of senior manager, focusing on audits of public companies within the asset management and financial services sectors. Griebenow has more than a decade of experience in the financial and public accounting industries.
Hemsley says: “I am confident that Jill’s vision and expertise will drive our operational excellence to even greater heights as our business in Europe continues to grow.”
Griebenow says: “BATS Chi-X Europe has maintained a unique position as a leader in pan-European markets, and continues to be a change agent for the European market for the benefit of all securities investors. I am pleased to be joining such a dynamic team within the BATS business.”
Michael Beaver, who joined the firm in 2008 as its founding CFO will be leaving the company to establish his own boutique accounting firm. He will remain a member of the BATS team until the end of March 2014 to ensure a seamless transition.
