Powernext, which owns 50% of EPEX SPOT, has launched in November 2008 the French spot and futures gas markets.
Conil-Lacoste spent ten years as a commodity trader at Louis-Dreyfus in Paris and Buenos-Aires until 1986 before managing the stockbroker Ferri’s fixed income department. He joined Euronext in 1997 to create and manage the London office as well as the French derivatives activities.
Conil-Lacoste graduated from ESSEC in 1976.
