On assuming this new role, Oliver Madden said: “I am honoured and privileged to succeed Sue Attwood as President of the ACI Financial Markets Association in the UK. Thanks to Sue’s leadership I inherit an association 100% focused on empowering financial professionals with the expertise and ethics to do the right thing, all of the time. Competence and conduct have never been more important in support of everyone’s ambition to restore trust in financial markets and I look forward to working with my committee to provide continued insight and value to our members.”
Sue’s commitment and contribution to ACI UK is acknowledged in the many, many tributes received from ACI colleagues and friends and her fantastic service to ACI has been recognised formally through Honorary Life Membership of ACI UK. Sue will continue to be involved in ACI UK’s flagship educational courses – the Dealing Simulation Course and new FX Masterclass – and we very much hope that she will continue to be an active participant in our events and activities.
ACI UK thanks Sue, Shoulders (Alan Clarke), Vince O’Sullivan and Jonathan Healey for their service and support to ACI UK and welcomes our new Committee Members to the fold.
