TMX Group names new CEO

TMX Group has announced the appointment of John McKenzie as its CEO, effective immediately.

McKenzie, who had worked as interim CEO since former CEO Lou Eccleston retired in January, is also being welcomed into the board of directors of TMX Group Limited.

“As we narrowed our focus on a short list of talented internal and external candidates, it became clear to the Board that John's impressive combination of business savvy, leadership acumen and vision make him the best fit for TMX and the right choice to lead the Company into the next exciting chapter in our history,” said Charles Winograd, chairman of the board.

McKenzie’s professional career includes more than 25 years of leadership experience, with 20 years spent in increasingly senior executive positions at TMX Group. In 2016, he was named chief financial officer (CFO), taking responsibility for the company’s corporate strategy, corporate development, and investor relations functions as well as finance. In 2018, his duties were expanded to include oversight of TMX’s Trust and Capital Formation businesses, including the TSX and the TSX Venture Exchange.

“I am humbled and honoured to be named CEO of TMX Group, an organization with a proud history of serving Canada's markets and an extremely promising future as we work to grow our presence in new markets around the world,” McKenzie said.

Frank Di Liso, vice president, Corporate Finance and Administration, who has been part of the Finance department leadership team for over 10 years, will take over the chief financial officer role on an interim basis, until a permanent successor is selected.
