IEX HIRES FORMER SEC HEAD OF DIVISION OF TRADING AND MARKETS
IEX today announced that John Ramsay, until recently the Acting Director of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Trading and Markets, is joining the company as its Chief Market Policy and Regulatory Officer. In this role, he will work with a broad range of constituents, including investors, broker-dealers, trading venues, and governmental and regulatory authorities, to advance the company’s investor and industry engagement objectives and will oversee the company’s compliance with its regulatory obligations and its self-regulatory obligations, once IEX is registered as a national securities exchange.
Brad Katsuyama, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of IEX said, “We are honored by John’s decision to join our team at IEX, especially given the numerous opportunities available to him since leaving his senior position at the SEC. Industry dialogue and education are paramount for IEX, and we are excited to have John represent our company as part of our executive team. From our first meeting, it was apparent to us that our collective vision of the future of the equity markets was aligned and he was a perfect fit to help us achieve our goals.”
