Sibbern transitions into new role responsible for Nasdaq’s European markets

NEW YORK and STOCKHOLM, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) today announced two changes to its executive leadership team. Bjørn Sibbern, currently Executive Vice President for Global Information Services, will assume the newly established role of President, European Markets, based in Stockholm. In his new role Sibbern will lead Nasdaq’s markets across the Nordic and Baltic region.  He will be responsible for managing trading, clearing, settlement, and data businesses in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, and the three Baltic countries. Additionally, he will lead Nasdaq’s effort to expand its presence and influence across the European region.
