The Dubai Gold and Commodity Exchange (DGCX) has today confirmed with deep sadness that the Exchange’s former CEO Gary Anderson passed away on the 13th November in London. Mr. Anderson had been fighting cancer for the last few months and had stepped down as CEO in October. In the two years that he served as CEO of DGCX, his vision, passion and leadership made a huge difference to the development of the Exchange’s business and all of the team.
During Mr. Anderson’s leadership, it is particularly worthy of note that DGCX rose from an emerging exchange to prominence in the Middle Eastern FX market, with specific interest in its Indian Rupee contract having propelled the venue to achieve high volumes which have generated further interest.
Mr. Anderson’s passing is a big loss not only to DGCX, but also to the wider industry. He will be fondly remembered for the great contribution he made to the exchange with his gentle yet strong leadership style.
The thoughts and prayers of the management and employees of DGCX go out to Mr. Anderson’s family.
