Sharon BowlesThe London Evening Standard reports the appointment of former Lib Dem MEP, Sharon Bowles, who stood down at the May 2014 European elections, to the board of LSE:

The London Stock Exchange has appointed one of the most senior former Liberal Democrats in Europe to its board as non-executive director. Ex-MEP Sharon Bowles was one of the short-listed candidates to become Governor of the Bank of England before Mark Carney was appointed. Bowles, 61, is widely seen as one of the most influential people involved in shaping EU policy on financial services regulation, including the key second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Mifid II).

She sat in the European Parliament from 2005 to this year and chaired its Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee. LSE chairman Chris Gibson-Smith said she “brings extensive knowledge of European political and regulatory trends impacting our business”. She founded the patent attorneys partnership Bowles Horton and has acted for top technology companies in the UK, US and Japan.
