New York Federal Reserve Poaches Citi’s Bottega as Chief Data Officer for its Markets Division

Subscribe to our newsletter

John Bottega’s no show at last year’s FIMA London event was noted by many and there was much speculation at the event that he was soon to leave his post as chief data officer for Citi’s Institutional Client Group. Reference Data Review can now indeed confirm that Bottega has moved onto pastures new: he has taken over as chief data officer for the New York Federal Reserve’s Markets Division.

Bottega was with Citi for a total of three years and has been a stalwart campaigner for the reference data world over the last 25 years. His appointment as chief data officer for Citi represented the first time a financial institution had created a c-level data executive position: a significant achievement indeed.

At Citi he was responsible for planning and managing the division’s data strategy, policies, line functions and data investments and working closely with Citi’s Global Infrastructure Conversion and Alignment Program (GICAP) team, Corporate and Investment Banking (CIB) Technology and the CIB Data Council.

Prior to this, he worked for financial institutions including Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers. At Credit Suisse First Boston, he headed up a global team within the Strategic Core Services Division, which was responsible for the acquisition, storage, management and dissemination of product and price reference data.

Before Credit Suisse, Bottega worked at Merrill Lynch, where he served as product manager for the firm’s Product Master Environment, responsible for the development of specifications, design and strategic planning for the firm’s reference data service solutions.

Although he has changed institutions, Bottega will retain his role as chairman of the board for the EDM Council.
