Gay Huey Evans

Gay Huey Evans, OBE, has joined the IHS Markit board of directors and audit committee.

In a career that has spanned both the public and private sectors, Huey Evans started at Paine Webber’s fixed income division as the only woman on the trading floor. She later joined pioneering derivatives dealer Bankers Trust in 1984, trading swaps and rising to hold a string of management positions, including head of options and warrants.

She went on to play a pivotal role in the development of the derivatives market – chairing the International Swaps and Derivatives Association from 1994 to 1998, as the industry sought to learn the lessons from a series of misselling scandals.  

Huey Evans left Isda to serve as director of the markets division and head of the capital markets sector at the UK Financial Services Authority until 2005. She later rejoined Isda in the wake of the global financial crisis, serving as vice chairman and non-executive chairman for Europe.

Currently, Huey Evans also serves as the chairman of the London Metal Exchange’s board of directors and as a member of Her Majesty’s Treasury Board in the UK. She was honoured by the British government in 2016 for services to financial services and diversity.

Jeffrey Golden has become a senior adviser to consultancy D2 Legal Technology. Golden, a lawyer, was the lead author of the Isda Master Agreement, the template for derivatives contracts developed by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association in the 1990s. He also helped create Isda protocols, a series of standard amendments to bilateral contracts.

Golden started his legal career at Cravath, Swaine & Moore in 1978 before joining Allen & Overy in 1994 as a founding partner in its US practice. He left Allen & Overy in 2010 to found the Prime Finance Foundation, an organisation of finance experts to help in legal disputes, and to focus on academia and writing.

Accountancy firm Deloitte has appointed Monica O’Reilly as the leader of its financial services industry practice, taking the place of Kenny Smith, who retired in May after 27 years with the firm. O’Reilly will retain her previous role as the financial services industry leader for Deloitte’s risk and financial advisory business.

Elsewhere, Mark Shilling becomes the firm’s banking and capital markets sector leader. He succeeds Scott Baret, who will move into a new role supporting the firm’s banking and capital markets clients. Shilling previously led Deloitte Consulting’s banking and capital markets unit.

He previously held positions at SS&C GlobeOp, a fund services provider, and Investec, according to his LinkedIn profile.
