On behalf of the board and management team, I thank Ed for his efforts on behalf of OCC.”

At Cboe, Isaacson is responsible for running the day-to-day operations of the company, including oversight of all technology and operations, risk and information security, the trade desk, infrastructure, data and analytics, and foreign exchange technology and operations.
