Aquis Exchange appoints Glenn Collinson as new Chair

Karthik Subramanian

Aquis Exchange, a group of companies that provide services for exchanges, has announced the appointment of Glenn Collinson as its new Chair and he would succeed Niki Beattie effective from January 1, 2022.

The company runs pan-European cash equities trading business via the Aquis Exchange, growth and regulated primary markets, and also runs a technology company that provides software to other exchanges.

Long and Bright Career

Glenn started his career at Racal and then move on to Motorola, Texas Instruments, and Cambridge Consultants Ltd. before co-founding Cambridge Silicon Radio in 1998. There he served as an executive director and helped grow the company from a startup to a $3 billion market capitalization entity in 2006 and one of the biggest players in the Bluetooth market. Since leaving CSR he has held several non-executive directorships in the UK and French companies – both public and private – that specialize in technology. He brings in a load of experience in the technology industry which would be useful for driving the strategy of Aquis Exchange.

Alasdair Haynes, CEO of Aquis Exchange said: “I am delighted that the Board has chosen Glenn Collinson as Niki’s successor. The last nine years have been a transformational period for Aquis Exchange and the Board, under the leadership of Niki, has helped to lay strong foundations for the future. With Glenn’s wealth of experience and his knowledge of the Group, with previous stints on both the Aquis Exchange and AQSE boards, I am confident that his energy, perspective, and commitment will support Aquis Exchange to go from strength to strength.”

Challenging Industry with Loads of Possibilities

Glenn had first joined the Company’s Board in March 2019 before transferring to the Board of Aquis Stock Exchange Limited (“AQSE”) in March 2020. Glenn re-joined the Group’s Board on 17 September 2021 as an independent non-executive director. The search for the successor to Miss Niki finally seems to have ended with Glen and he would be expected to push ahead with the strategic plans for the group companies and make the company continue to remain competitive in the exchange services market which is dominated by some major players. These are some exciting times for the trading and exchange industry with a multitude of opportunities waiting to be tapped into, around the world, and it is up to the group companies to ensure that they manage to do that.
