James McDonald
, President and CEO, Rockefeller & Co., Inc.; Chairman, Japan Society

Since assuming the post in January 2004, the New York Stock Exchange Chief Executive Officer John Thain has launched initiatives that have made the Exchange more responsive to customers, more efficient and technologically proficient, and better positioned to compete in the rapidly changing global capital marketplace.  Under Mr. Thain’s leadership, the Exchange, with its Hybrid market initiative, has moved ahead to broaden its world-leading floor-based auction trading model with greater electronic trading capability.  At the same time, the NYSE has strengthened its base of domestic and international listed companies and further diversified its presence in the trading of Exchange Traded Funds, while putting into place plans to expand the trading of other derivative products.  Recently, the NYSE announced a proposal to merge with Archipelago Holdings, and to become a publicly-traded company, leading to greater transparency, innovation and ability to address emerging customer needs.  Along with his colleagues, at the NYSE, Mr. Thain is committed to finding ways to best serve customers, and to ensuring the Exchange’s and America’s standing as the world’s leading financial marketplace, and to broaden its partnership with markets and nations throughout the world.  Mr. Thain will discuss the implications of these initiatives and other changes for trading in capital markets around the world.
