IG Group has just announced that Joanna Nayler has taken up her newly created position as Chief Legal and Governance Officer, with management responsibility for the company’s Legal, Company Secretarial and Internal Audit functions.
Nayler will be based in London and will report directly to June Felix, CEO, IG Group. A key focus of the role will be to deliver pragmatic, proportionate and policy-led advice in a fast moving global regulatory environment, as trusted adviser to both the Board and the ExCo.
LeapRate reminds that in December, IG appointed Maggie Yeung as CEO, Greater China, and in February hired Simona Stoytchkova, Head of Germany. All three roles are part of IG’s Global Leadership Team.
June Felix, CEO, IG Group, commented on the hire:
Joanna has over 20 years’ experience in Legal and governance roles and it’s pleasing to welcome yet another high-calibre senior female leader to the IG leadership team. Joanna is well versed in supporting the development and delivery of legal and regulatory issue resolution in corporate environments to both support business ambition and mitigate risk.
Prior to IG, Nayler worked for the FTSE 250 financial services company, Just Group plc, where she was most recently Group General Counsel after joining in 2013.
I’m delighted to be joining a strong and client-centric global brand like IG Group, especially at such an exciting time in its development, with its focus on new product opportunities, expanding geographical reach and serving new client segments”, she said.
