Nasdaq OMX Group named William (Bill) Morgan — the former Chief Information Officer of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange (PHLX) — to head up global human resources for Nasdaq OMX, effective January 2009.
Morgan, whose official title is SVP of Nasdaq OMX Global Human Resources, will be responsible for the operation of the global exchange conglomerate's global human resources department and provide support to Nasdaq OMX employees worldwide, according to today's release. Morgan will report to Nasdaq OMX CEO Bob Greifeld.
Morgan served as CIO of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange until its acquisition by Nasdaq OMX, which was finalized in July of 2008. Since that time, Morgan has supported the integration of the PHLX staff, technology systems and Market Operations Group. Morgan served as CIO at the PHLX for over 12 years. During his time in that role, he was in charge of managing the activities of its technology team and market operations group. He was also involved with overseeing all major technology initiatives at PHLX, including the implementation of the PHLXXL Electronic Hybrid Options Trading System, which boosted the regional exchange's market share in options trading. In total, Morgan brings over 25 years of strategic leadership, technology and management expertise in the financial services industry to the role.
In a statement, Greifeld cited Morgan's "demonstrated leadership of teams and successful career at the PHLX," as factors that "make him ideal for this position, a key strategic leadership role at Nasdaq OMX."
