ICE Chief Development Officer Chris Edmonds Steps Up to Lead Fixed Income and Data Services Business

Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) has named Christopher Edmonds, currently chief development officer, to succeed Amanda Hindlian and lead the company’s Fixed Income and Data Services (FIDS) business. FIDS is the company’s second largest business segment and was founded on ICE’s October 2015 $5.2 billion acquisition of Interactive Data Corporation.

Edmonds has held several roles at ICE since joining the firm in 2010. He oversaw the company’s credit default swap clearing service during implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act, and from 2013 to 2019, led ICE product sales teams in fixed income, commodities, and financial futures. Since 2019, he has overseen the clearing and risk teams supporting the company’s six derivatives clearing organisations. Based in Chicago, Edmonds will relocate to Atlanta, joining a growing presence of ICE fixed income and data services teams.

“During the past 13 years, I’ve watched how ICE has become indispensable in connecting people to opportunity,” says Edmonds. “Going forward, while we have long applied large language models to our user offerings, their broad adoption will accelerate our ability to deliver customers an unparalleled user experience.”

As Edmonds assumes his new role, Elizabeth King, who joined ICE in 2014 following its acquisition of NYSE and is currently chief regulatory officer and president of the sustainable finance business, will add leadership of ICE’s six clearing houses and its global risk management team, both part of Edmonds’ prior portfolio. As part of the transition, the ICE sustainable finance team will report to Edmonds.

Edmonds and King will take up their new roles on 1 January 2024 and continue to report directly to ICE founder, chair and CEO, Jeffrey Sprecher.
