Xavier Rolet knows how to manage the pinstriped population of London’s financial district.

After starting out as a Goldman Sachs Group Inc. trader, he spent almost a decade as chief executive officer of London Stock Exchange Group, the market infrastructure company with 4,500 employees. The firm’s value rose fivefold during his time there, and Rolet collected more than $50 million in total compensation.
