The company has hired Credit Suisse banker Nicolas Desombre to lead its investment bank in France, the latest in a series of senior hires in Europe to help strengthen its operations in the region.

BATS GLOBAL MARKETS

The exchange operator said on Tuesday its president, William O'Brien, has left the company, less than six months after BATS merged with rival Direct Edge, where O'Brien had been chief executive. BATS CEO Joe Ratterman has reassumed the role of president, the company said, without giving any reasons for the changes.
