Eurex exec board member Spillman to retire
Jürg Spillmann is to retire at the end of the year from the executive boards of the Eurex companies.
Spillmann, aged 62, served as deputy CEO of Eurex Zürich and Eurex Frankfurt from their launch in 1998, and of Eurex Clearing.
He will become a member of the board of directors (supervisory board) of Eurex Zürich with effect from January 2014, and will remain on the supervisory boards of the European Energy Exchange (EEX) and European Commodity Clearing (ECC) as deputy supervisory board chairman.
Spillmann made a decisive contribution to the migration of exchange-traded derivatives from local floor trading to fully electronic, global marketplaces. He was responsible for the development of the systems which defined electronic derivatives markets at that time and have continued to do so to date.
“With his IT expertise, Jürg made a major contribution to our company's long-term success, in which technology was and is a decisive factor. I would like to sincerely thank Jürg for this achievement and wish him all the very best for his retirement,” says Andreas Preuss, CEO of Eurex and deputy CEO of Deutsche Börse.
Spillmann's roles in the Eurex executive board will be taken over by the existing executive board members.
