Chris Ferreri

Chief Operating Officer
OpenDoor Trading

I have leveraged my technical degree with my business acumen to develop innovative business methods while continually being focused on customer needs. The challenges that face any business is to first understand the customer needs, and then to find ways to fill those needs. My focus on developing and marketing new products to existing and potential clients has had a positive impact on the marketplace. Beginning my career as an electrical engineer, I moved into the financial services industry more than 25 years ago. The interdealer broker industry serves the largest global financial institutions and acts as an intermediary among these firms. My approach toward these markets has been to bridge the high levels of customer service that are a hallmark of the interdealer markets with the latest and most sophisticated electronic trading systems. I have always been very interested in strategic planning and strive to continuously add to my knowledge of business, technical, political and regulatory components of the industry. I help manage our government affairs programs and have been actively engaged in the derivatives reform effort for the past four years, developing a keen understanding of the regulatory reform process and the impacts it can have to the industry. As a spokeperson for my company and the industry, I've had numerous and ongoing conversations with industry professionals as well as legislative and regulatory leaders in NY, Chicago and Washington. I enjoy the camaraderie of the financial services industry and the opportunities it provides.
