New BSX chief compliance officer designate
Ailish Byrne has been named chief compliance officer designate at the Bermuda Stock Exchange.
Ms Byrne has 25 years of international stock exchange and financial services experience.
She will be working to help drive the development of BSX listing and compliance activities. She will also assist BSX president and CEO Greg Wojciechowski in developing and executing strategic initiatives.
Mr Wojciechowski said: “On behalf of the team at BSX, I am excited to welcome Ailish. She brings a wealth of experience that will help us build on our strong foundation and continue to grow our exchange.
“BSX recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, and we look forward to growing our team and expanding our capabilities to better serve our valued clients for the next 50 years.”
Before joining BSX, Byrne spent more than 15 years on the leadership team at the Irish Stock Exchange, where she led communications and regulatory functions, and managed internal and external relationships with Irish and international stakeholders.
She is a PWC-trained chartered accountant and has a proven track record of implementing projects that transformed the Irish Stock Exchange's voice and brand, while also successfully managing important operational changes across the Irish stock market.
Ms Byrne joins an experienced team of Bermudians as she replaces James McKirdy, who is retiring after devoting more than 20 years of his career to BSX.
The two will work closely together as Ms Byrne transitions into her new role.
“I would like to thank James for his many years of exemplary service to BSX,” said Mr Wojciechowski.
“He has been a critical member of our team throughout his tenure, helping to grow our exchange and implement best practices in our listings and compliance functions. It has been a pleasure working with him over the years.”
The BSX is a wholly owned subsidiary of Miami International Holdings Inc.
