DGCX has paid tribute to its former chief executive Gary Anderson who passed away last week.
The Dubai exchange said in a short statement that Anderson passed away on November 13 after battling cancer for the last few months. He stepped down as chief executive of the exchange last month.
“In the two years that he served as CEO of DGCX, his vision, passion and leadership made a huge difference to the development of the Exchange's business and all of the team,” the exchange said.
“His death is a big loss not only to DGCX, but also to the wider industry. He will be fondly remembered for the great contribution he made to the exchange with his gentle yet strong leadership style.
“The thoughts and prayers of the management and employees of DGCX go out to Gary's family.”
