  • Jim Kaye has been appointed Executive Director with responsibility for all FIX staff, marketing, communications, sales and the day to day operations of FIX. Many of you will know Jim who has worked with FIX for over twenty years including time as both a Director and as GSC co-chair and will bring that experience to help take the organisation forwards.

This completes the journey of building a consistent management and regional structure for FIX, ensuring it can meet the needs of its members and the industry more broadly across the global community. We wish Laurence and Jim the very best in their new roles.
