Mr. Andreas Preuss, Chairman of the WFE Board of Directors, said “Our Board is grateful to Hüseyin Erkan for stepping into the CEO roll at a time of great transition for the Federation. He led WFE’s successful move to its new London headquarters from its Paris home base of 52 years. His oversight throughout his tenure has enabled WFE to continue to fulfill its long-standing commitment to improve the safety and integrity of the world’s regulated exchanges, while positioning the organization to carry that mission forward in today’s rapidly changing global marketplace. We thank him for his service and dedication.”
