When Lou Eccleston became TMX Group CEO three and a half years ago, he needed to turn around declining organic revenue and profitability. Once that was achieved, eyes turned to growth. Eccleston and TMX were able to jumpstart that growth by acquiring energy platform Trayport last year. In this video from JLN’s annual series with industry leaders, Eccleston talks about the changing ideology at TMX Group and how the group is positioning itself for international clientele.
