NYSE Euronext Names Peter Leukert As Global Chief Information Officer

NYSE Euronext (NYX), a leading global operator of financial markets and provider of innovative trading technologies, today announced the appointment of Peter Leukert as Global Chief Information Officer, effective immediately. Mr. Leukert will lead NYSE Euronext’s global Information Technology operations and will report to President and Deputy CEO, Dominique Cerutti.

As Global CIO, Mr. Leukert will bring his extensive experience to the continued transformation of NYSE Euronext and its IT operating model.

Since 2007, Mr. Leukert has been CIO of Commerzbank, in charge of all applications and IT infrastructure, including a technology group comprising 3,800 employees. Prior to that, he worked for McKinsey since 1994 where he became a partner in 2001. There he led the development and implementation of IT strategies and projects at major financial organizations and government agencies.

“Peter’s success in creating and operating financial systems on a global scale makes him the ideal choice to advance our worldwide technology platform and organization,” said Mr. Cerutti. “Peter brings an in-depth understanding of the technologies that drive today’s markets as well as keen insight into how best to meet the dynamic needs of our customer community going forward.”

Mr. Leukert said: “NYSE Euronext is at the epicenter of global finance, which makes this a tremendously exciting opportunity. I have made a career of learning how to create and operate solutions for highly complex and mission-critical issues and challenges, and I look forward to employing those learnings in the world’s greatest financial arena.”

About Peter Leukert

As CIO of Commerzbank, Germany’s second-largest bank, Mr. Leukert co-led the integration of Dresdner Bank into Commerzbank, which was successfully completed in May 2011, just 1,000 days after the announcement in August 2008. This integration allows Commerzbank to deliver 2.4 billion euros of annual cost savings.

At McKinsey, he worked predominantly for financial service providers, capital markets and the public sector. His consultancy work was focused mainly on IT and operations management. He is co-author of the book, "Successful IT Management in the Public Sector." Mr. Leukert has a Ph.D. in financial mathematics from Huboldt Universität zu Berlin.
