Tom Kloet is best known as an affable Midwesterner who transformed two international exchanges—Singapore’s SGX and Canada’s TMX Group—and emerged from these tumultuous undertakings with the respect and admiration of all involved. As the first chief executive officer and executive director at SGX from 2000 to 2002, he led the exchange through its transition from a small mutually owned enterprise to a publicly traded company. In 2008 he became chief executive officer of TMX Group and oversaw the integration of the Montreal Exchange. His career also included long stints in senior roles at leading futures brokers such as Credit Agricole, ABN AMRO and Newedge, giving him a perspective that spanned both sides of the industry.
