NEW YORK, June 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today announced the appointment of Senior Vice President Stacie Swanstrom to lead its Global Corporate Solutions business. In this role, Swanstrom will be responsible for leading the strategic direction of the business while managing the success and growth of Nasdaq's current IR, PR, governance and multimedia offerings. She will report directly to Adena Friedman, President, Nasdaq, effective July 1, 2015.
Swanstrom is a Nasdaq veteran, with over twenty years of experience in various leadership roles within the Market Services segment. Swanstrom is currently the head of Global Access Services for Nasdaq, a business with over $200M in annual revenue and a strong strategic and financial track record during Swanstrom's six-year tenure managing the business. Early in her career she led the strategic development of the Nasdaq Workstation, expanding it from a standalone trading interface to a suite of 10 products that spanned trading, order handling and compliance. She has since successfully managed a portfolio of software and connectivity solutions for Nasdaq's trading clients including co-location services, a new IPO Indicator tool and Nasdaq's Trade Reporting Facility.
In addition to holding various leadership roles at Nasdaq including Product Development, Global Marketing, and Human Resources, Swanstrom is also a member of several industry boards including the Boston Stock Exchange Clearing Corp, The Stock Clearing Corporation of Philadelphia and the FINRA/NASDAQ Trade Reporting Facility, LLC. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Business with a concentration in Marketing from Towson University.
"We are excited to be able to benefit from Stacie's deep technology expertise, customer focus and leadership skills as she takes on this role," said Adena Friedman, President, Nasdaq. "Stacie has a proven track record in delivering growth and profitability to our businesses, and we look forward to seeing her apply her home-grown experience in taking the Corporate Solutions business forward."
In addition, Anna Ewing, Executive Vice President, will transition into a Strategic Advisory role, effective July 1, 2015. Ewing joined Nasdaq in 2000 and has held several senior technology leadership roles throughout her successful tenure, including most recently leading the company's Global Corporate Solutions business. Ewing will remain with the company through the end of the year, when she plans to retire.
"Our Corporate Solutions business has made significant progress against the original priorities and vision we laid out a few years ago," said Friedman. "While there is more work to be done, we have built a global, client-centric suite of offerings that is unique in the marketplace and enables us to differentiate our relationships with our clients around the world.
