He was set to retire from the OCC in the first half of 2023.[3]

In 2023, Davidson was inducted into the Futures Industry Association's Futures Hall of Fame, which was established in 2005 to commemorate outstanding contributions to the global futures and options community.[4]

Background[edit]

Davidson previously worked at Citigroup from 2008 to 2017, most recently as chief compliance officer.[5]

Before joining Citigroup, Davidson was managing director and chief corporate development officer of CME Group from February 2006 to April 2008. He was responsible for oversight of research and product development, strategic planning, business development, and corporate project management. While at CME, he led the project to integrate the legacy Chicago Mercantile Exchange with the Chicago Board of Trade.[6]

Previously, Davidson spent twelve years at Morgan Stanley, starting in December of 1993, as managing director and operations officer for the firm's global operations and services division, where he oversaw the integration of systems and processing services to combine the firm’s previously separate institutional, retail and investment management divisions into a single global securities business. He rebuilt the firm’s global institutional processing system and opened new processing centers on four continents.

Earlier, he was senior vice president of the CME's clearing house division from August 1983 to November 1993. While there, he was instrumental in developing and implementing the Standardized Portfolio Analysis of Risk (CME SPAN) margining system and the design of CME Clearing 21.

Ushering In The OCC's Renaissance - John Davidson, OCC

The OCC’s ENCORE clearing system, while resilient, is long in the tooth and inflexible. OCC’s Project Renaissance aims to revamp the central counterparty’s data, risk management and clearing systems. The OCC chose Cinnober as a partner for the multi-year project. While that key initiative is something the OCC has planned for years, the SEC’s decision not to renew the clearinghouse's capital plan was a curveball. In this video from JLN’s Industry Leader Series, OCC CEO John Davidson talks about those two developments.
