The London Metal Exchange (LME) has appointed Gay Huey Evans OBE as Chairman of its Board of Directors. Huey Evans will replace Sir Brian Bender when he retires from the Board in early December 2019, as previously announced. 

Huey Evan’s international experience within the financial services industry includes significant commercial, risk, governance and regulatory knowledge and expertise. 

LME Chief Executive Matthew Chamberlain says: “I am delighted to welcome Gay to the LME and look forward to working closely with her. Her global experience in developing policy and growing markets, combined with her deep understanding of risk, governance and regulation, will be paramount to LME as we continue to grow in an ever-changing landscape.” 

Huey Evans says: “I am very proud to have been elected Chairman of the London Metal Exchange at such a pivotal time for the Exchange. As metals play an increasingly important role in society with increased focus on ethical supply chains, the LME’s role and responsibility is vital. I look forward to working closely with the Board, the members and clients of the LME, and Matthew Chamberlain and the Executive team, to build on the rich heritage and hugely successful advances under Sir Brian’s leadership for the past nine years”. 

Bender says: “It has been a great privilege to serve as Chairman of the LME’s Board for the past nine years. During that time, we have navigated important and vital developments for the LME and its place in the global industry – from the acquisition by HKEX in 2012, to the development of the Strategic Pathway, and more recently to the launch of our Responsible Sourcing initiative. I am very pleased to be handing on the baton to Gay at the end of this year, who I am confident will continue to drive the transformation both within the LME and the wider industry.”
