A Conversation with Joe Ratterman
Library Director Crosby Kemper III leads a conversation on entrepreneurship with Joe Ratterman, president and chief executive officer of BATS Exchange.
Based in Lenexa, Kansas, BATS Exchange is one of the fastest growing equity markets in the United States with a team focused on fostering innovation and competition in the securities markets. BATS was founded in June 2005 at a time when market innovation and technology leadership were at risk due to over consolidation in the exchange industry.
Ratterman joined BATS as a founding employee and served as executive vice president and chief operating officer from 2005 to mid 2007.
He is also president and CEO of BATS Global Markets, the holding company for BATS Exchange and BATS Europe.
