Mumbai: The National Multi-Commodity Exchange of India Ltd (NMCE) has appointed Anil Mishra as its first chief executive officer, a senior official said on Wednesday.
Mishra, who was earlier working as India manager for Switzerland-based Ecom Gill Coffee Trading Pvt. Ltd, will take charge in the first week of April in this newly created post, Dinesh Shukla, vice-president, market development, said. The Ahmedabad-based exchange, which is 26% owned by the Bombay Stock Exchange, has also appointed S.S. Vyas as its first chief operating officer, he said.
The exchange plans to reactivate four agricultural commodities, six base metals and two precious metal contracts in April to improve falling trade turnover, the official had said on Tuesday.
