Jos Dijsselhof appointed new CEO

The Board of Directors of SIX has appointed Jos Dijsselhof Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with effect from 1 January 2018. He succeeds Urs Rüegsegger, who announced in May 2017 that he would be retiring.

A Dutch citizen, Jos Dijsselhof, 52, holds degrees in computer science and Business Administration, and has a long track record in international management in the financial sector. He has previously held positions at ABN Amro Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland and ANZ Australia & New Zealand Banking Group in various countries, including Hong Kong and Singapore. His most recent role was Chief Operating Officer (2014–June 2017) and CEO ad interim (2015) for Euronext in Amsterdam. During his career, Jos Dijsselhof has successfully headed several change projects and gained a wealth of experience in securities and financial data, as well as the payments business, so he is fully familiar with the business models of SIX.

I am delighted to have found in Jos Dijsselhof an experienced manager for SIX with strong leadership qualities and an outstanding track record. I would also like to thank Urs Rüegsegger for his service and dedication. Under his leadership, SIX was able to lay a solid foundation, and I am confident that Jos Dijsselhof will build on this and successfully lead SIX to further successes.

Romeo Lacher, Chairman of the Board of Directors
