Brough takes up the new role next month, following the departure of head of corporate comms John Wallis earlier this year. A spokeswoman for LSE Group was unable to comment on Wallis’ next move.

Brough has been head of external affairs, EMEA, for Thomson Reuters since 2008. Prior to this she spent a year as global head of financial PR for Reuters and held senior roles at the consultancies Powerscourt and Citigate Dewe Rogerson.

In the new role Brough reports directly to Group CEO, Xavier Rolet. He said Brough would bring ‘media relations skills of the highest pedigree and has a record of delivering successful and cohesive corporate affairs programmes at both board and operational levels’.

Rolet added: ‘These skills will ensure that the London Stock Exchange continues to maintain constructive and effective dialogue with all our opinion formers and media commentators.  I am looking forward to working with her to develop our media and external communication strategy, ensuring we get our messages out as effectively as possible.’

In 2009, the London Stock Exchange has appointed Citigate Dewe Rogerson as its corporate and financial public relations agency, replacing previous incumbent Finsbury.
