Arun Raste on Monday took charge as Managing Director and CEO of the country’s leading agri-commodity bourse National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange Limited (NCDEX).
Before joining NCDEX, Raste was associated with the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) as an executive director, the exchange said in a statement.
Raste’s tenure begins at a time when NCDEX is looking forward to building on various initiatives that it has started in the last couple of years, it added.
These include the launch of commodity indices, options in goods and NCDEX’s footprint in the non-agri segment.
With a special focus on farmers, the exchange has been running targeted drives like the ‘Options Familiarization Program’ to connect farmer producer organisation.
“Under the new leadership, these initiatives will scale new heights and would widen the participation base to a wider set of audience,” the exchange said.
