Euroclear has hired a former policymaker from France’s securities regulator in a newly created regulatory and compliance role.

The Belgian-based CSD has appointed Guillaume Eliet as head of regulatory, compliance and public affairs, as it looks to coordinate its policy strategy across the group.

Eliet joins from the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) where he was most recently deputy general secretary and headed up the regulation policy and international affairs division. He also served as head of the asset management directorate for the French regulator.

He will report to Lieve Mostrey, CEO of Euroclear and Inge Boets, chair of the audit committee.

“He [Eliet] will be a source of trusted counsel in an ever changing regulatory landscape. Guillaume brings a wealth of experience, which will be invaluable as we continue to provide the best service for our global client base,” said Euroclear’s Mostrey.
