Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing : LME Management Changes

Corporate
21 Jan 2022

Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) today (Friday) announces that after more than nine years with the business, Matthew Chamberlain, CEO of the London Metal Exchange (LME) and Group Head of Commodities, will be stepping down on 30 April 2022 to pursue career interests outside of the Group.

Adrian Farnham, LME Clear CEO, effective 1 May 2022, will become Interim LME CEO and Group Head of Commodities. He will become a member of HKEX Management Committee and report to Group CEO, Nicolas Aguzin. Mr Farnham joined HKEX Group in 2013 and brings more than 30 years' experience of financial markets and market infrastructure to the role. HKEX will utilise the period ahead of Mr Chamberlain's departure to select an appropriate Interim LME Clear CEO, to ensure a smooth and effective handover.

Nicolas Aguzin, HKEX CEO, said: "Over the last decade Matt has been instrumental in reinforcing the LME's global leadership in the metals industry, overseeing the LME's warehouse reforms, introducing new products and initiatives, such as London platinum and palladium prices and managing the business through various modernisations. More recently, at a time when sustainability is front and centre, Matt has overseen the LME's responsible sourcing programme and the introduction of LMEpassport, initiatives that have not only shaped the LME's business but have improved transparency, disclosure and attitudes towards sustainability across the global metals industry.

"Throughout his tenure, Matt has been a much respected and trusted member of the HKEX senior management team, and on behalf of everyone at HKEX, I would like to thank him for his leadership, commitment and dedication to the Group and we wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.

"I am delighted that in Adrian we have someone with the experience and knowledge to lead the LME. I am looking forward to continuing to work with him, and the rest of the team in the months ahead, as we continue to drive our business forward."

Matthew Chamberlain, LME CEO, said: "I have had the most rewarding and enjoyable decade with the LME, working with a team and a community that I love, and I am proud of the many things that we have achieved over that period. But it is now time for me to move on to new challenges. Adrian Farnham, who has worked alongside me at the LME for much of the last nine years, is an excellent choice as Interim LME CEO and HKEX Head of Commodities, and I know that the market and my colleagues across the Group will continue to do all they can to support him and the business in the future."

HKEX and the LME Board have already convened a search committee and have begun a formal search process.
