BATS Exchange Names Tami Schademann Chief Regulatory Officer.
BATS, which launched its trading platform in January 2006, began operations as a licensed national US securities exchange last Friday, Oct. 24. BATS Exchange will be active in all US-listed symbols on Nov. 6.
Ms. Schademann is responsible for all regulatory and compliance functions, including registration requirements, maintenance and retention of records, and general trading practices. A founding employee of BATS, Ms. Schademann has run the compliance department since the company began operations in June 2005. She was also instrumental in preparing BATS' exchange application with the SEC.
Leading up to the 2006 launch as a US trading platform, Ms. Schademann played a central role in BATS' application with the National Association of Securities Dealers (now FINRA) to become a broker dealer, as well as the firm's application with the SEC.
"Tami has successfully led BATS through a number of SEC and FINRA compliance requirements, and is the ideal person to lead BATS Exchange as chief regulatory officer," BATS CEO Joe Ratterman said. "Transitioning to an exchange comes with added regulatory responsibility, and I have full confidence in Tami to lead our expanding regulatory compliance team."
Prior to joining BATS, Ms. Schademann was chief compliance officer for four years at Tradebot Systems. Previously, she was a manager at Security Investment Company of Kansas City as well as in the trust divisions of Firstar Bank, Commerce Bank, and Security Bank of Kansas City.
