For the sixth consecutive year, Lou Eccleston, CEO of TMX Group, has been named in Institutional Investor's 2017 Tech 40. The annual ranking recognizes the world's "power players in financial technology" for successful and innovative leadership. One of only two members of the Top 40 representing Canadian companies, Mr. Eccleston came in at #28 on this year's list after accomplishing a turnaround and return to profitable growth in 2016. The executives named to the 2017 Tech 40 interpret the broad direction and implications of high-tech advances to provide creative solutions for customer challenges and to capitalize on opportunities for their organizations.
