David Thomas, the head of comms at The World Federation of Exchanges, is returning to global exchange Deutsche Boerse as a senior UK/EU media adviser from March 15.
Thomas, who left the exchange in February last year, will handle Deutsche Boerse’s relations with London and Brussels-based media, based out of its London office. He previously managed relations with the UK financial media.
His appointment coincides with ongoing merger talks between Deutsche and the London Stock Exchange and follows the appointment of Carsten Kengeter as CEO in June last year. Reportedly, the posited all-share “merger of equals” could be worth some £20bn.
