Welcome to episode 14 of The Orlagh Claire Podcast!
In this episode, I spoke with Alexander Maidwell, Head of Marketing at the London Stock Exchange Group.
It was great to talk to Alex about his career journey to date as we both began our careers on the Mountbatten Program in New York, so it was especially lovely to talk through our memories of living and being interns in the Big Apple.
What we discussed
In this episode, we started off with Alex’s career history right from university up until today where he leads a team of 20 people in the Marketing department.
We spoke about Alex’s many positions within the London Stock Exchange Group and the changes that have happened at the company over the years that he has been there.
For the most part, we both reminisced about being a New Yorker and witnessing once-in-a-lifetime events which for Alex was Hurricane Sandy and for me was being in New York when the pandemic first began.
