Petr Koblic, Member of the Management Board of Vienna Stock Exchange, CEO of the Prague Stock Exchange and Member of the Board of CEESEG was elected President of the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE) on 3rd October 2018 for a term of three years. The election was unanimously approved by the FESE General Assembly.
Mr Koblic has been actively involved in FESE for a number of years, he joined the FESE Board in 2016 and was nominated into the position of Vice President in June of this year.
Mr Koblic said: ‘It is an honour to be elected to the position of FESE President and represent the European Exchange industry which is an integral part of the European economy. Given the geopolitical challenges ahead, now more than ever we need to work together to improve European capital markets that are transparent and efficient and deliver to the financing and risk management of the European economy.
As an ambassador of small and medium exchanges particularly in Central Europe, my experience of building and promoting the crucial role of local ecosystems will hopefully add to the organisation. The FESE Membership has long been committed to supporting exchanges of all sizes and I will certainly ensure all voices are heard within the Membership’.
