About our speaker:
 
Jeff Sprecher is the founder of IntercontinentalExchange Group, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), serving as the company’s Chief Executive Officer since May 2000 and as the Chairman of the Board since November 2002. Under Mr. Sprecher’s guidance, ICE has expanded from one asset class into nine global markets for interest rates, equities and equity derivatives, credit derivatives, bonds, foreign exchange, energy, metals and agricultural commodities.
Mr. Sprecher acquired Continental Power Exchange (CPEX) in 1997 to achieve his vision of an efficient market that would bring transparency and capital efficiency to previously opaque and fragmented markets. IntercontinentalExchange was formed in 2000 and the company completed its initial public offering in 2005 on the New York Stock Exchange.
Mr. Sprecher has led numerous strategic acquisitions, including the International Petroleum Exchange of London (2001), the New York Board of Trade (2007), Creditex (2008), The Clearing Corporation (2009), the Climate Exchange (2010), and NYSE Euronext (November 2013). In November of 2013, ICE announced its acquisition of Singapore Mercantile Exchange.
Prior to acquiring CPEX, Mr. Sprecher served as President of Western Power Group, Inc., a developer of large central-station power plants in California.
Raised in Wisconsin, Mr. Sprecher earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and a Master of Business Administration from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.
