WFE Announces Annual Women Leaders List

The World Federation of Exchanges (“The WFE”), the global industry group for exchanges and CCPs, today published its annual Women Leaders List.

The WFE’s Women Leaders initiative aims to shine the spotlight on some of the talented and gifted women in our industry. The industry initiative drew more than 60 senior nominations from every corner of the world as the WFE’s global membership put forward their talented existing, and future, leaders. From the total pool of nominations, 21 women were chosen by the WFE Selection Committee, themselves a distinguished group of 6 leaders.

Nandini Sukumar, Chief Executive Officer of the WFE said: ‘The women on this list are all people of substance. Most have not taken linear paths to their current success nor do they come from the same background. What they all have in common is ability, the capacity for hard work, perseverance, the fortitude to overcome challenges and the skill to bind people together to strive towards a common purpose. This in essence is leadership.’’

The WFE also thanks the 6 members of the Selection Committee who are themselves exceptional industry leaders.
