New direction: Former Irish Stock Exchange chief Somers named non-executive director at UK’s Aquis

…Aquis noted that Ms Somers led the transformation of the Irish Stock Exchange from a “relatively small domestic equity exchange to a highly profitable plc with global specialisms”.

Aquis chairperson Niki Beattie welcomed Ms Somers’ appointment.

“Her experience will be extremely valuable to Aquis as we continue our journey to become the leading exchange services group in Europe,” she said.

Ms Somers is also a non-executive director of Irish mining firm Kenmare Resources, and is a non-executive director and audit committee member for Blackrock iShares.
