ETF.com Founder Hands Over the Reins

News summary by MFWire's editors

The founder and CEO of a world's leading authority on ETFs just announced his successor.

Jim Wiandt, ETF.com’s founder and CEO confirms that Matt Hougan, 38, will take over as CEO, effective immediately. Wiandt, who founded the company in 2001, will stay on as vice chairman and president of ETF.com's Europe operation.

"We chose Matt not just because of his extensive knowledge of exchange-traded products, but because he has demonstrated the organizational and leadership skills required to lead a growing and dynamic organization,” states Wiandt.

According to ETF.com, "Hougan has worked at ETF.com for more than eight years, and was the fourth employee to join the company. Under his guidance, the company’s U.S. business achieved record results in the past year, including record attendance and revenue at its marquee conference, Inside ETFs, and dramatic growth in its core online and print media properties, ETF.com and ETF Report."

ETF.com chairman Barnaby Grist, the person who conducted the CEO search, believes that "As the use of ETFs expands, Matt’s vision for how to educate, engage with and empower investors and financial advisors will drive better outcomes for investors and continued rapid growth at ETF.com."
