London Stock Exchange Group Plc said it appointed Goldman Sachs' David Schwimmer as chief executive officer effective Aug. 1.

Schwimmer has been with Goldman for 20 years and most recently served as global head of market structure and global head of metals and mining in investment banking.

Former LSE CEO Xavier Rolet stepped down last year just under a decade after he took charge and transformed the company with a string of deals.
