A management structure reorganisation has been prompted at the London Stock Exchange by the new chief executive Clara Furse two months after taking office.
The move is understood to be a sign of Furse making her stamp on the LSE focusing on strategic development and the strengthening of its marketing and communications drive.
The restructuring sees the creation of two high profile positions - deputy chief executive which will be filled by the current director of business development Martin Wheatley, and director of communications to which communications director at the Consumers' Association Nick Gammage is appointed.
Wheatly will be responsible for corporate strategy and development while Gammage takes up responsibility for developing and implementing LSE's communication strategy.
Furse said the reorganisation puts in place a management structure which will focus on LSE building its future.
Now more than ever, the London Stock Exchange is strongly placed to build on its role as Europe's pre-eminent stock exchange, Furse added.
