David Krell has been a leader and innovator in the options industry, with a career that spans more than 35 years. In 1997 he co-founded International Securities Exchange, the first fully electronic options exchange, and served as its first president and chief executive officer. ISE grew to become one of the largest options exchanges in the world and helped pave the way for greater competition among trading venues and a tremendous expansion in the size of the U.S. listed options markets. Following ISE’s merger with Deutsche Börse in 2007 and its integration with Eurex, he was named chairman of the board and continues to serve in that capacity.
