ATHENS (Reuters) – The board of Hellenic Exchanges, the operator of the Greek equity and equity derivatives markets, has chosen Yiannos Kontopoulos as its new chief executive to replace outgoing CEO Socrates Lzaridis, the group said on Saturday.

Kontopoulos, a partner and chief macro strategist at the London-based CQS fund, previously worked as a managing director at UBS and Merrill Lynch. He was previously CEO of Eurobank Asset Management.

The board’s decision was unanimous, Hellenic Exchanges said. Earlier this month, Hellenic Exchanges signed a framework agreement with the Bulgarian Stock Exchange (BSE) to trade, clear and settle Bulgarian derivatives.
