The 2014 Tech 50: Hauke Stars

Two decades in increasingly senior technology industry positions, including running Hewlett-Packard Co.’s Swiss business from 2007 to 2012, didn’t quite prepare Hauke Stars for the risk management and compliance requirements that she sees as unique to financial services. “It’s not only about delivering the fastest networks or being the first to launch a new application,” she says. Stars, 47, got up to speed quickly after being hired straight onto the five-person executive board of Deutsche Börse, the world’s second-largest exchange group by revenue, in December 2012. She oversaw the merger of — and now heads — the combined market data and IT services divisions, which generated 19 percent of the group’s €1.9 billion ($2.6 billion) in revenue last year. Currently focusing on analytic services and automated regulatory reporting capabilities (which Deutsche enhanced with its January acquisition of London-based Impendium Systems) as key drivers of growth, Stars notes, “It’s interesting how the rapid growth of technology has impacted the need for regulation, and now regulatory changes will drive the kinds of IT advances we see in the future.” She’s also pushing technology and data services as vehicles for boosting the group’s business in Asia. Last year Deutsche Börse licensed its T7 derivatives-trading platform to Mumbai’s stock exchange and entered into a market data and analytics partnership with the Indian bourse.
