Experian Chairman tipped to become head of London Stock Exchange

Don Robert

Don Robert, the Chairman of Nottingham-headquartered Experian, is tipped to succeed the outgoing chairman of the London Stock Exchange (LSE) according to Sky News.

Following a dispute last year between the stock exchange’s board and the Children’s Investment Fund Management (TCI), which held a five per cent stake in the LSE, it was announced that the existing Chairman Donald Brydon would not be standing for re-election as chairman at the annual general meeting in April 2019.

Discussions between Robert and the LSE’s board are said to be at an advanced stage and the appointment is likely to be announced before Christmas, Sky News.
