The 2014 Tech 50: Anna Ewing

Anna Ewing
Executive Vice President, Global Technology Solutions
NASDAQ OMX Group

Promoted in early 2013 after eight years as chief information officer, Anna Ewing oversees businesses that produced 26 percent of Nasdaq OMX Group’s $529 million in first-quarter 2014 net revenue — more than either market data (19 percent) or listing services (11 percent). Ewing, now executive vice president of global technology solutions, manages market technology ($53 million in the first quarter) and corporate solutions ($82 million). Together they brought in $60 million more than in the comparable 2013 period; $58 million of that accrued to corporate solutions, boosted by the June acquisition of Thomson Reuters’ investor and public relations business. Also fueling growth, Ewing says, are the company’s BWise and SMARTS compliance and surveillance products, as well as MiQ, a business intelligence tool released in May that provides “real-time insight” to capital market operators. “We are seeing the need to monitor and manage through the whole trade life cycle,” says the 53-year-old. In market technology sales, Nasdaq signed agreements over the past 12 months with exchange operators in Bahrain, Iraq, Malaysia and Rwanda. It also took a 5 percent stake in Borsa Istanbul, underscoring a shared objective “to move their strategy forward,” Ewing says. She reports to Adena Friedman, a former CFO who in June rejoined the company as president of global corporate, information and technology solutions.
