Scoach, a European trading platform for structured products, has made a change to its management board.
After three years' service, Marco Steeg (pictured) is returning to Deutsche Börse to head controlling and billing with effect from 1 November 2012.
Simone Kahnt-Eckner is to become the new chief financial officer and chief operating officer of Scoach Schweiz, Zurich, and Scoach Europa, Frankfurt, also from 1 November 2012.
Kahnt-Eckner has many years of experience in capital markets. She has been at Deutsche Börse Group since 1989. She has worked in Deutsche Börse's Xetra cash market since 2000 and, since 2007, has been in charge of the business with all exchanges that use Xetra as a trading platform as well as cash market shareholdings.
“We thank Marco Steeg for his hard work in developing Scoach,” says Frank Gerstenschläger, member of the Deutsche Börse executive board and the Scoach supervisory board. “I have highly regarded Simone Kahnt-Eckner's work for years. She will use her network to further internationalise the company together with chief executive officer Christian Reuss.”
