As President and Chief Operating Officer of ICE Data Services, Lynn Martin is responsible for overseeing ICE’s market data, analytics and connectivity businesses. Together, these businesses are the cornerstone of ICE’s strategy to provide enhanced trading, valuation and data services to customers around the world. Having worked in both the financial services and technology industries, and with degrees in computer science and statistics, Martin had the dynamic background ICE needed to oversee such an important part of its business.
More companies than ever before rely on financial data and analytics in order to effectively manage their risk. Among the areas that fall under Martin’s responsibility:
Martin was named to MarketVoice’s 2016 list of nine people who are expected to have an “outsize influence” on the data services industry in 2016. The editors noted that Martin’s “long experience in business development across technology, trading and clearing will be particularly valuable.”
Martin joined ICE as part of the company’s acquisition of NYSE Euronext, where she was CEO of NYSE Liffe U.S. In this role, Martin oversaw the successful introduction of several new fixed income and equity index futures, and after the merger with ICE, oversaw the integration of its contracts onto ICE’s trading platform. When that was completed, she was named COO of ICE Clear U.S., a position she held until being promoted to lead ICE Data Services in July 2015.
“This is an exciting time to be in the data services business,” Martin said. “There are so many opportunities to create value for our clients, allowing them to leverage data to more effectively manage risk, while growing their businesses. ICE continues to invest in innovative new solutions for the industry that provide transparency, opportunity and connectivity.”
Before joining NYSE Euronext in 2001, Martin worked in IBM’s Global Services organization, where she worked in the financial services practice.
