“I am deeply thankful for Michael's huge contribution and commitment to Deutsche Börse Group during his impressive career since he first joined Deutsche Terminbörse in 1991. Michael was instrumental to Eurex's success. Now, I am excited that Robbert Booij joins our team. Robbert has an excellent background in the derivatives industry. With his client perspective, he is the perfect candidate to lead Eurex Frankfurt AG.

“I know Eurex well from my current role at ABN AMRO Clearing Bank N.V. and had the honour to be the Chairman of the Eurex Exchange Council. Eurex is a global derivatives powerhouse, both in trading and clearing. I feel very privileged to be appointed as CEO of Eurex Frankfurt AG. I am excited to work with the team and Eurex's clients in my new role, and to build upon the great achievements delivered under the leadership of Michael,” underlines Robbert Booij, designated CEO of Eurex Frankfurt AG.
