Euronext has appointed Maria João Borges Carioca Rodrigues as CEO of Euronext Lisbon, CEO of Interbolsa and member of the Managing Board of Euronext N.V., pending all relevant shareholder and regulatory approvals.
Carioca Rodrigues joins Euronext from Caixa Geral de Depósitos (CGD) where she was Executive Board Member and Head of Marketing and IT/Operations, having had extensive experience in the European financial sector. Her proven track record in executive roles, combining demanding business development challenges with high performance operational and systems setups, make her the most relevant person to lead Euronext’s operations in Portugal.
Carioca Rodrigues will join Euronext during the second quarter of 2016, after completing her current duties at CGD and having received relevant shareholder and regulatory approvals.
To ensure a smooth transition, Isabel Ucha, currently interim CEO of Euronext Lisbon, and Rui Matos, currently interim CEO of Interbolsa, will remain in these positions until Maria João Carioca Rodrigues is officially appointed.
Stéphane Boujnah, Euronext CEO and Chairman of the Managing Board, says: “We are delighted to welcome Maria João Carioca Rodrigues to our team and thank her for accepting this key position within the Group. I am confident that her strong experience in financial markets will allow her to develop our operations in Portugal. As Euronext continues to evolve, we welcome dynamic individuals like Maria João who actively contribute to driving innovation throughout our pan-European model. I would like to thank Isabel Ucha, who has played a critical role as interim CEO of Euronext Lisbon and Rui Matos, who has been serving as interim CEO of Interbolsa, for their commitment during this period.”
