Global broking network Brokerslink announced the departure of Jacqueline Legrand as chief executive officer. After tenure of six years Legrand has resigned from her position to return to New York to take on a new professional opportunity and reunite with her family, according to the announcement.
Legrand has been involved with Brokerslink since 2009, when she was managing director for international business at Crystal & Co. of New York, with the responsibility of Brokerslink chief operating officer for the Americas. In 2012, when she joined MDS Group, she took on responsibility as Brokerslink regional director EMEA. She has been COO and member of the board at MDS Group, a shareholder of Brokerslink, since 2012.

The innovative platforms and offerings she developed with her team will be instrumental for Brokerslink growth,” said Gregory Allard, chairman of Brokerslink.
