WSJ: Nasdaq lines up candidate to replace Greifeld as CEO

Nasdaq OMX (NDAQ) has appointed Carlyle (CG) CFO Adena Friedman as a co-President in a move that the WSJ reports makes her the leading candidate to replace Robert Greifeld as CEO of the exchange operator when he departs. Nasdaq has been working on a succession plan since last year.

Friedman, who will become President of Global Corporate & Information Technology solutions, returns to the exchange operator after leaving for Carlyle in 2011 following an initial 17-year stint at Nasdaq.

The company also named Hans-Ole Jochumsen as a co-president with Friedman. Jochumsen will head the firm's Global Trading & Market Services.
