Brad Katsuyama, Co-Founder and CEO at IEX Group, commented: “We are thrilled to elevate Craig Resnick to the role as Chief Financial Officer for IEX.

“Since Craig joined us in 2019 as Head of Finance, he has displayed a deep commitment to IEX and its mission, has built a world-class team, and has proven to be an exceptional leader. We are also excited for Sara to take the next step in her career and wish her much success in her new role. IEX is a stronger company because of her contributions.”

Prior to IEX Group, Mr. Resnick served as Senior Vice President of Finance and Treasurer at Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG), where he was responsible for all global financial planning and accounting functions.

There, he led several capital restructuring transactions and helped the company secure new private equity investment, which provided significant liquidity to shareholders.

Other key roles in his career include Assistant Controller for Liquidnet, where he developed deep expertise in finance and accounting for capital markets,  and senior financial advisory roles at Aon Consulting and Kroll Associates, where he focused on forensic accounting and litigation consulting.

Craig Resnick, Chief Financial Officer at IEX, said: “IEX is an exceptional team on a mission to reimagine how markets can work for all investors and, more broadly, how financial technology can accelerate economic growth in a responsible and equitable way. I’m honored to play a larger role helping IEX grow as CFO”.
