"Going forward, TMX is continuously examining ways to adapt our business to meet the needs of our clients across the markets we serve, explore synergies across the enterprise and execute on our global strategy for long-term profitable growth," added Mr. Eccleston. "Peter's entrepreneurial spirit, proven track record in growing a business and extensive knowledge of both TMX and the broker community are key assets he will leverage in helping us continue to drive growth at Trayport."
