Succession planning in SIX Exchange Regulation management
The Board of Directors of SIX have elected Corinne Riguzzi as the new Head of SIX Exchange Regulation with effect from 1 January 2017. The Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) has approved the election.
Corinne Riguzzi has worked in the area of trading supervision at SIX Swiss Exchange since 2006. The 42-year-old lawyer has been admitted to the bar and holds a Master of Laws (LL.M). She headed up the Enforcement & Compliance department of Surveillance & Enforcement prior to assuming overall responsibility for the monitoring of trading at Surveillance & Enforcement within SIX Exchange Regulation in August 2012. Since then, she has also been a member of the Executive Board of SIX Exchange Regulation as well as Deputy Head of SIX Exchange Regulation since mid- 2013. She is therefore not only familiar with the duties and processes associated with surveillance, but also with the various duties associated with the entire spectrum of self-regulation and the related bodies. Thanks to her membership of the IOSCO Affiliate Members Consultative Committee, Ms Riguzzi also has a strong international network.
Rodolfo Straub, who has headed up SIX Exchange Regulation since its creation at the beginning of 2009, requested to transfer his responsibilities to his successor early in view of his retirement. From January 2017, he will continue to work with SIX with a reduced workload, providing assistance with projects.
Alexandre Zeller, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SIX: «In Corinne Riguzzi, we are gaining a management expert with an extraordinary amount of experience in the area of exchange regulation and a very strong international network. I am also pleased that an internal candidate was able to successfully prove herself during the recruitment process for this central role. At the same time, I would like to sincerely thank Rodolfo Straub for his enormous commitment. He has made a substantial contribution to professionalism and to the credible entrenchment of self-regulation in securities exchange law.
