DTCC Board Elects Michael Bodson Chief Operating Officer

Share article

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) announced today that DTCC’s Board of Directors has elected Michael C. Bodson to the post of chief operating officer (COO), effective immediately. Bodson will also become president and chief operating officer of DTCC’s U.S. regulated subsidiaries, The Depository Trust Company (DTC), National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC) and the Fixed Income Clearing Corporation (FICC).

Bodson will report to Donald F. Donahue, DTCC’s chairman and chief executive officer, and will become a member of DTCC’s Board of Directors at its October meeting. Bodson is taking on the COO title from William B. Aimetti, who will be retiring in 2011. However, Aimetti will retain his current title as president of DTCC and will continue to serve on DTCC’s board until his retirement.

As chief operating officer, Bodson will have enterprise-wide responsibility for all Information Technology and Operations at DTCC. In addition, he oversees two major businesses: DTCC’s Trade Information Warehouse for over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives and EuroCCP, DTCC’s European clearing and settlement organization. Bodson will continue serving as chairman for both EuroCCP and MarkitSERV, a global joint venture for OTC derivatives that DTCC is involved with in partnership with Markit.

“Since joining DTCC, Mike has been heavily involved in helping to transform DTCC into a global organization with extensive new global capabilities and services,” said Donahue. “He has broad and diverse leadership experience in financial services over a 25+ year career, including initiating and growing business in overseas markets. This experience, coupled with his strategic understanding of the issues facing our industry, make him exceptionally qualified to help lead DTCC as we take on the many post-crisis risk management challenges in the future.”

The appointment of Bodson as COO is part of a planned succession of DTCC’s leadership that has been under way for the past several years.
