OCC, the world's largest equity derivatives clearing organization, announced today that Elizabeth King, General Counsel of NYSE Group, has joined the Board of Directors as an Exchange Director. She fills a vacancy created by the departure of former NYSE Group President Thomas Farley in May.

Prior to joining NYSE Group, she was Deputy General Counsel and Global Head of Regulatory Affairs at securities trading firm KCG Holdings, Inc. Before joining KCG, King was Associate Director, Division of Trading and Markets at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, where she was responsible for the SEC's regulatory program for oversight of the securities markets.

"As a Systemically Important Financial Market Utility, OCC works diligently to clear the path for investors by ensuring confidence in the financial markets and the broader economy," said Craig Donohue, OCC Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The addition of Elizabeth to our board of directors supports OCC's continued resiliency, innovation and growth as an industry leader and market influencer in our mission to provide high quality and efficient clearing, settlement and risk management services to market participants."
