Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Milan, Oslo and Paris – 21 February 2023 – Euronext today announced that the Supervisory Board of Euronext N.V. will propose the appointment of Benoît van den Hove as CEO and Chairman of Euronext Brussels and member of the Managing Board of Euronext N.V., at Euronext’s Annual General Meeting on 17 May 2023. As he will reach retirement age in December 2023, Vincent Van Dessel will step down as CEO of Euronext Brussels on 1 July 2023 and as Chairman of Euronext Brussels on 1 December 2023.

Benoît van den Hove, who is currently Head of Listing for Belgium and Luxembourg at Euronext, will become CEO of Euronext Brussels as of 1 July 2023, subject to relevant regulatory approvals, and will work closely with Vincent Van Dessel to ensure a smooth transition, until he replaces him as Chairman of the Board of Euronext Brussels as of 1 December 2023.

Benoît van den Hove has been Head of Listing at Euronext Brussels since July 2018. Benoît has more than 20 years of experience in various roles in the financial sector, advising Belgian and international clients on their financing needs through capital markets transactions and interactions with regulators. Prior to joining Euronext, he spent 17 years at global Benelux bank ING, and two years at international law firm Linklaters.

Vincent Van Dessel has been the CEO of Euronext Brussels since September 2009. From 2003 to 2009, Vincent was General Manager of Euronext Brussels. From January 2000 to June 2003, he was Chairman of the Market Authority of the Brussels Exchanges, responsible for member admission, listing, company information and the supervision of the markets. Upon the merger of the Amsterdam, Paris and Brussels exchanges to form Euronext in September 2000, he became a member of the Executive Committee. He joined the Brussels Stock Exchange in 1992 as Director Markets and Listing, and later became a member of the managing board of the Brussels Exchanges. Vincent Van Dessel started his career as a stockbroker in 1984.
