London — FIA today announced the election of new directors to its Board of Directors, including the appointment of Alicia Crighton of Goldman Sachs & Co as its first-ever female Chair.
“Alicia’s appointment as the first female chair in FIA’s history is a well-deserved honor, and we hope it provides an example to the next generation of leaders in our industry,” said FIA President and CEO Walt Lukken. “We congratulate Alicia, and we thank her for taking on this leadership position at a very important time for cleared derivatives markets around the globe.”
Crighton, the global co-head of futures and head of OTC and prime clearing businesses at Goldman Sachs, has served on the FIA Board of Directors since 2018 and was appointed to Vice Chair in 2020. She serves as FIA’s representative on the CFTC Market Risk Advisory Committee and was instrumental in the launch of FIA’s board-level diversity initiative in 2019.
