The Options Clearing Corporation Key Developments

OCC Appoints Amy McCormick as First Vice President, Financial Risk Management

OCC announced the appointment of Amy McCormick, formerly with the National Futures Association, as First Vice President, Financial Risk Management, a new position for the organization. McCormick starts in her new role, and will report to Dale Michaels, Executive Vice President, Financial Risk Management. Prior to joining OCC, McCormick was a Managing Director at the National Futures Association (NFA), where from 2015 to the present she managed a multi-divisional $60 million program to overhaul clearing risk management systems and oversaw examinations, investigations, and risk management teams. Before the NFA, McCormick served as an Executive Director at CME Group in Risk Management from 2012 to 2015 where she led a successful initiative on real-time risk management, which turned a slow batch process into the ability to view exposures on updated positions and prices in under a second to be able to detect, analyze, and mitigate any risk management concerns. McCormick joined CME Group in 2003, where she held a series of roles with increasing responsibilities in risk management, which included the introduction of pre-trade credit controls, which manage the damage an out of-control trading algorithm could inflict on the markets and a clearing member. McCormick also worked from 2002 to 2003 as a Treasury Analyst for Sears, Roebuck, and Co., and from 1997 to 2000 as a consultant for Tetra Tech EM Inc.
