Ed Tilly, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer at Cboe Global Markets said: “Over the last six years, Cathy’s strategic vision for growing the Information Solutions business has been instrumental to our efforts to build a more expansive suite of data analytics, market intelligence and execution services.

“Her expertise in integrating the company’s client-facing technologies into our full suite of information solutions services has helped create a high-value offering for our customers. I am fully confident she will bring this same leadership to her role overseeing our new Data and Access Solutions division, as we look to grow the business and our market data offering globally.”

Catherine Clay, Executive Vice President, Data and Access Solutions at Cboe Global Markets, said: “This is an exciting time at Cboe as we continue to diversify and expand our products, services and technology offerings on a global scale and I am excited to lead this new division.

“Our goal is to optimize efficiency and delivery of our information solutions to market participants across the globe and we believe this holistic approach will bring significant value to our customers. Ultimately, we aim to deliver a seamless experience for customers by providing one single source of market data, analytics and trading resources.”

Cboe customers are increasingly looking to access multiple asset classes across numerous geographies, to market data and analytics and trade management and execution services. The new division addresses those needs for global data, analytics, and access services.

The company believes the new division will further grow its base of proprietary non-transactional revenue, which was approximately $350 million in 2020. In 2021, the company is targeting organic revenue growth in this category of 6 to 7 percent.

Catherine Clay has been with Cboe since 2015. As Senior Vice President, Information Solutions, Ms. Clay has helped clients better understand and access Cboe’s market data and analytics, execution services, and index businesses. Her role included overseeing the integration of several acquisitions into the information solutions business line.

Starting out as a clerk in Interactive Brokers’ market-making unit in 2000, Ms. Clay progressed to director of floor trading and operations until she co-found Thales LLC, a market-making firm on the NYSE Options Floor and on the OneChicago single stock futures exchange.

In 2010, Ms. Clay joined LiveVol, Inc. as Chief Strategy Officer. The firm was acquired by Cboe in 2015. At the time, she was already Chief Executive Officer.
