Johnston brings over 18 years of experience in the financial technology industry to the role, the marketplace organizer said.

The CTO is also succeeding Karl-Heinz Flöther who resigned from his position and left the Board after 10 years, the company also said.

While delivering his speech at the AGM, Martin Jetter, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, called for support for Ukraine in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.

Jetter said, “Before getting into my report on the work of the Supervisory Board, there is one issue that cannot and must not go unmentioned: the severe, to us hardly conceivable suffering that Mr Putin’s war of aggression is inflicting on the

country of Ukraine.

“What the Ukrainian people now need is more than mere sympathy: they need our active support. We at Deutsche Börse are facing up to our responsibility with aid measures for those directly and indirectly affected as well as by doing our part regarding the implementation of the imposed sanctions.”

How’s Börse Doing?

Meanwhile, Börse saw a 24% jump in its net revenue for the first quarter of 2022 due to increased trading activities. In absolute terms, the figure came in at more than €1.06 million.

In March, the trading venue operator’s cash markets generated a turnover of €250.5 billion in March 2022.

The outcome is a 22% increase (approximately) from the €205.4 billion it recorded earlier in February.

On the contrary, Börse’s  forex  non-deliverable forwards (NDFs) dropped by 25% between March and April 2022.

The company also reported a marginal 2.1% increase in its cash markets in the April.
