The ASX has appointed a new chief compliance officer, set to start in July.
Kevin Lewis has stepped down as the stock exchange’s chief compliance officer after 10 years in the position, effective from 1 July. He is taking a different role at the ASX as he transitions to retirement in mid-2022.
The exchange’s deputy general counsel, Janine Ryan, is set to replace him as the ASX’s representative on its corporate governance council and as the ASX executive responsible for providing secretarial support to the council.
Ms Ryan joined the ASX legal team in 2013 from Gilbert + Tobin, where she was a partner in the equity capital markets area.
On Mr Lewis’ tenure, Elizabeth Johnstone, chair of the ASX corporate governance council, said he was a major contributor to the third and fourth editions of the council’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations, which she said were major milestones in the development of corporate governance standards in Australia.
Mr Lewis has worked on Australia’s continuous disclosure regime through rewriting ASX Listing Rules, introduced reforms to the rules and most recently initiated and implemented the exchange’s temporary emergency capital raising relief to support listed entities through the COVID-19 pandemic.
