Mark Dickens is to retire as head of listing and will be succeeded by David Graham. Following a successful transition of responsibilities, Mr. Dickens will now bring forward his planned retirement from July to March.
Since joining HKEx in January 2009, Mr. Dickens has played a key role in HKEx's development. During his tenure as head of listing, Mr. Dickens has overseen significant policy developments, upheld the high level of integrity of Hong Kong's listing regime and played a vital part in maintaining Hong Kong’s position as a leading financial centre. Mr. Dickens has successfully overseen 16 major consultations and several subsequent changes to the Listing Rules, including, among other things, the enhancement of corporate governance practices, guidance on environmental, social and governance reporting and enhanced support for board diversity in Hong Kong.
Mr. Graham, who joined HKEx earlier this month as chief regulatory officer and head of listing (designate), has over 30 years of experience in legal and financial services.
Meanwhile, effective April 30, Yang Qiumei will step down as head of Mainland development to pursue an opportunity at an international financial institution.
Since joining HKEx as head of the Mainland development team in 2010, Ms. Yang has spearheaded HKEx's Mainland development strategy and has played a key role in various strategic developments of the company. She has, among other things, orchestrated the establishment of China Exchanges Services Company, a joint venture, and made a critical contribution to the successful acquisition of the London Metal Exchange. With Ms. Yang's pioneering work, HKEx’s presence and visibility in the Mainland have been transformed, helping establish closer ties between Hong Kong and Mainland capital markets.
HKEx has, with Ms. Yang's support, identified her successor as head of Mainland development and will make a further announcement on this in due course.
