As Nasdaq Stock Market evolved into Nasdaq OMX growing from what was once a mutually owned U.S. equities market into a for-profit, globe-circling exchange company with 22 markets covering all major asset classes Anna Ewing was its technology architect.
A former managing director of global applications services at CIBC World Markets, Ewing, 49, has been with Nasdaq for ten of her more than 25 years in the financial industry, and its chief information officer for five years. She says her brief was to transform the technology organization and deliver on a road map that would provide the next-generation trading platform.
Ewing was in charge of integrating the Boston and Philadelphia exchanges that Nasdaq acquired in 2008, and she oversees the $145 million-in-revenue market technology business, which includes the former OMX and serves 70 trading venues around the world. We see ourselves as a technology vendor and an exchange, she says, adding that her technology group has a seat at the strategic planning table and a partnership with the other business units.
