“The foundation of a successful business is a strong team,” said Jeff Conway,

evaluate and act on it empowers the investment decisions that will set our
clients’ strategies apart in an increasingly complex market.”

who also have deep expertise in building the types of products and tools
clients need,” said Dr. Stein. “Jeff and Tom are both innovators in our field
and they bring a rich understanding of both the analytics business and the
underlying technologies required to create new generations of integrated
analytics offerings. We are excited to have them both on board.”

Before joining Global Exchange, Hughes held a number of senior positions
including chief operating officer and president of The Connors Group, a
quantitative-equity trading research business. He also led the digital product
strategy practice at Moody’s and oversaw the conversion of existing service to
digital delivery and initiated a number of new products including
industry-leading data feeds and software-as-a-service innovations. Most

firms in New York City. Hughes serves his community as a Director of the
