ETF.com names new CEO
California-based ETF.com, which covers news about exchange traded funds, has named Dave Nadig as its CEO, reports Cinthia Murphy of ETF.com.
Murphy writes, “Nadig had led ETF.com’s data and analytics efforts, building the data platform, contributing commentary, and playing a leadership role in the company from 2008 to 2015. Nadig, whose footprint in this industry goes back 20 years, replaces current CEO David Lichtblau, who will be leaving ETF.com at the end of the year to pursue other interests.
“‘The advantages of ETFs—efficiency, transparency, diversification and flexibility—have never been more important for investors than they are right now. But to paraphrase Stan Lee, with great power comes great responsibility, which means the burden on the press and on issuers to provide world-class information and education is intense,’ Nadig said. ‘It’s a challenge that ETF.com has always embraced, and I can’t wait to get back in the mix.’
“‘The ETF ecosystem is in an incredible period of growth and innovation, and at the same time, the regulatory climate is uncertain,’ he added. ‘I’ve spent most of my career in and around the ETF business, and I can’t think of any place I’d rather be right now than at the center of it all—ETF.com.'”
