MOVES-Milan, ex-head of Asian commodities at HKEx, joins LME broker Kingdom

MELBOURNE, March 25 (Reuters) - Liz Milan, formerly head of Asian commodities for Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing and of Asian business at the London Metal Exchange (LME), has joined Kingdom Futures to help expand its brokerage business, the LME broker said on Wednesday.

Milan ran the Hong Kong bourse's Asian commodities business after it took over the LME in 2012. She had played a key part in the historic $2.2 billion sale of the LME by its members in her role as an executive board member.

She will work for Kingdom Futures in a sales and marketing capacity and also as an adviser, Malcolm Freeman of Kingdom Futures said.

Milan left HKEx (HKSE: 0388-OL.HK - news) at the end of 2013 and consulted for rival exchange CME Group (Kuala Lumpur: 7018.KL - news) for part of last year. She had a run of more than eight years at the LME, where she was managing director of its Asian business from 2010.

Milan worked for Enron Europe and Sempra Metals from 2000 to 2004, according to her LinkedIn profile, and started her career as a steel trader at Stemcor in London.
