Laura Morrison was named senior vice president, global head of exchange-traded products, at BATS Global Markets.
The position is new, said Randy Williams, BATS spokesman. ETP duties had been handled by Brian King, director, head of listings, at BATS. He remains in that position, Mr. Williams said.
Ms. Morrison was senior vice president, global index and exchange-traded products, at the New York Stock Exchange. Steve Crutchfield, executive vice president and head of U.S. options, ETPs and bonds, will handle her duties in the interim while the exchange searches for a permanent replacement, said Eric Ryan, NYSE spokesman.
