Nov 20 (Reuters) -

The London Stock Exchange Group on Monday named Michel-Alain Proch as its new finance chief, starting March 1, 2024.

Proch, who currently serves as group CFO of advertising group Publicis, takes on the role from Anna Manz, who stepped down in May.

Last week, LSEG, which owns London's 300-year old stock exchange, raised its mid-term growth guidance to "mid-to-high single" digits and said it would return a billion pounds to shareholders in 2024 as it looks beyond the integration of data and analytics company Refinitiv.
