Grant Angwin Voted as Vice-Chairman Board Election Results

Friday, July 07, 2017

The LBMA’s twenty-ninth Annual General Meeting took place on 6 July. This year it was the turn of the Market Maker representatives on the Board to stand down, although they were eligible to stand again for election for a further two-year period.

Nominations were also invited from individuals wishing to stand for these three positions.

Given that the number of candidates was greater than the number of places available, an election was required to decide which representatives would be re-elected or elected.

The results of the Market Maker representatives election was as follows:

Peter Drabwell, HSBC Bank plc
Raj Kumar, ICBC Standard Bank
Sid Tipples, JP Morgan Chase Bank N.A.

Grant Angwin was also elected as the Vice-Chairman of the LBMA.

In his report for the past year, LBMA Chairman, Dr Paul Fisher, commented on the number of initiatives that the LBMA had introduced as well those it will be involved with in the future. A copy of Paul's speech can be found here.
