Charlotte Crosswell is CEO of the FinTech trade group Innovate Finance. She took over that post in August of 2017 when Lawrence Wintermeyer stepped down as CEO.[1]

Previously, Crosswell was a board member and advisor to Nasdaq OMX NLX, where she had previously been the chief executive officer. She stepped down as head of the cross-product trading and clearing platform on May 1, 2016, after NLX shut down due to low interest rates and declining volumes.[2]

She continued to represent Nasdaq as a board director at LCH Ltd until January of 2017 and TheCityUK until 2015.[3]

Previously, Crosswell was president of NASDAQ's OMX Pan European Market, which linked multiple trading pools across Europe.[4][5][6] The NASDAQ OMX Pan European Market spot required Crosswell to be based in London. She was responsible for the operations and strategic development of the Pan European market and reported to NASDAQ OMX executive vice president of Transaction Services, Chris Concannon. That market closed down in 2010.[7]


Crosswell started her financial career at Goldman Sachs in European equity sales in 1995 and worked there for three years.[8]

From 1998 to 2004, she held management positions at the London Stock Exchange in sales and business development roles, both in the UK and internationally.

From 2004 to 2007 Crosswell was head of international listings for NASDAQ. While in this position, she was responsible for non-U.S. IPOs and managing NASDAQ's relationships with its overseas listed companies through representatives based in London, New York, Bangalore, and Beijing. She fought with the LSE to persuade businesses in burgeoning markets to list on NASDAQ rather than London's junior Alternative Investment Market.[9]

From 2007 to 2008, Crosswell was a partner and head of business development at Pension Corporation, a London-based pension management firm. At Pension Corporation, she was responsible for the firm's business development strategy, as well as developing relationships with customers, the actuarial community and the media.[10]
