New York, NY / London August 5, 2014 – The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) today announced two executive management appointments in its Global Trade Repository business as the company continues to expand operations globally to bring greater transparency to the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market and to help financial firms meet new regulatory trade reporting mandates.
Effective immediately, subject to final approval by the appropriate Board(s) and/or Committee(s) of Deriv/SERV and DTCC at their upcoming meetings, Chris Childs will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer, DTCC Deriv/SERV.

They will also build upon the work we are doing with regulators to enhance transparency and mitigate risk in this market.”
