RELATED TOPICS​

Aquis Exchange has appointed Daniel (Danny) Lopez to the board of its subsidiary, Aquis Stock Exchange (AQSE) – a market for growth companies – as an independent non-executive director (NED). The appointment has received approval from the FCA.

Lopez brings a deep knowledge of next-generation technology to AQSE, with significant experience across financial services and cyber security technology. He has overseen several large change programmes in both the private and public sectors as well as the launch of new brands, making him ideally placed to support the broad transformation of AQSE that is underway.
 
Lopez is the CEO of Glasswall, an award-winning cyber security company, as well as a non-executive director of Innovate Finance, the independent industry body that champions the global FinTech community in the UK. He is also a special advisor to the FinTech Collective, a New York-based venture capital firm which invests in FinTech companies. Previously in his career, Lopez held a number of other roles in the financial and technology sectors, including as Chief Operating Officer of Blippar, an Augmented Reality and AI company, HM Consul General to New York for the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, CEO of London & Partners and several international positions at Barclays Bank.
 
AQSE is a UK-based stock market providing primary and secondary markets for equity and debt products. It is permissioned as a Recognised Investment Exchange, which allows it to operate a regulated listings venue.
 
Michael Berkeley, Chairman of Aquis Stock Exchange, says: “I am delighted to welcome Danny to the Aquis Stock Exchange Board. As a modern market for modern businesses, AQSE uses superior technology to deliver better results for all participants, and it is therefore fitting that we should be appointing an expert in FinTech to the Board today. We will be consistently improving and innovating in our technology to ensure we remain leading-edge, and I am sure that Danny will play an integral part in this.”
 
Lopez says: “It is fantastic to be joining AQSE at such an exciting time in its development, with momentum building in its IPO pipeline. It is clear that part of the attraction for modern growth companies looking to go public is the superior technology on offer, and I am looking forward to building on this further with the business alongside supporting its broader growth.”
