NYSE magazine, a quarterly publication of NYSE Euronext, provides insights into the world’s best companies, giving readers a close-up look at the distinguished leaders that constitute the NYSE community.

FROM NYSE EURONEXT CEO DUNCAN NIEDERAUER
Our cover story details how Delta Air Lines CEO Richard Anderson led the carrier through bankruptcy, a major merger and a complete restructuring. Wendy’s/Arby’s Group CEO Roland Smith transports us through another acquisition adventure, beginning on page 24.
In a profile on page 30, PPG Industries CEO Charles Bunch reveals how he streamlined the conglomerate into a global coatings specialist. And on page 18, CEO Eric Foss describes how he drives efficiencies into Pepsi Bottling Group’s supply-chain systems.
I am very encouraged by this evidence of leaders’ unyielding commitment to pushing forward in a difficult market, including the year’s first IPO, Mead Johnson Nutrition, which I am proud to say chose to list on the NYSE (see photo).
At NYSE Euronext, we have launched a number of exciting initiatives, including new information services for listed issuers and two anonymous block trading products: SmartPool in Europe and the New York Block Exchange in the U.S. We agreed to collaborate with the Shanghai Stock Exchange in exchange-traded funds. We successfully launched a single order book that aggregates the Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels markets to concentrate liquidity and simplify cross-border trading, and we migrated our four European cash businesses to our Universal Trading Platform.
We launched NYSE Arca Europe, a Multilateral Trading Facility for the trading of pan-European stocks from a single screen. We expanded our command of global derivatives trading with the launch of a new U.S. futures business, NYSE Liffe U.S., and the purchase of a second U.S. options business through our Amex acquisition (see page 42).
We moved our NYSE Amex options business to the NYSE trading floor and, as with our equities market, deployed state-of-the-art technology to benefit traders and customers alike.
In our U.S. cash trading businesses, our technology and capacity upgrades, part of our revamped market model, significantly enhance our ability to provide value and accountability to customers and to better compete. Learn more about the new obligations to issuers of our Designated Market Makers, formerly known as Specialists, on page 6.
During these challenging times, my colleagues and I remain focused on our customers and on delivering calm, confident — and frequent — communication. Our new brand strategy, “Powering the exchanging world” (see the cover), says it all. Our vision brings together the markets, people and technologies that power global business, including yours. We look forward to fostering this collaboration and to shaping a future with you and all of our valued partners.
