NFA Appoints Wooding

The board
of directors of the National Futures Association (NFA) has approved the appointment
of Carol Wooding as vice president, general counsel and secretary at its
February 16, 2017 meeting in Chicago.

Wooding
will assume the general counsel’s duties from Thomas Sexton, who will serve as
NFA’s president and CEO beginning March 1, 2017.

“Carol
has a deep understanding of the regulatory issues facing the derivatives
markets,” says Sexton. “She has years of experience developing rules
and implementing effective regulatory programs to ensure market integrity and
enhance customer protection. With her extensive experience in derivatives
regulation and her demonstrated leadership abilities, Carol is well prepared to
address the issues facing NFA and the industry.”

Wooding
began her legal career in 1991 as an NFA staff attorney and was subsequently
promoted to assistant general counsel in 1998 and to associate general counsel
in 2010.
