DTCC’s vice chairman Larry Thompson will retire at the end of the year after serving more than three decades with the market infrastructure firm.

Thompson, who has held a variety of senior-level roles including general counsel, has played a number of key roles while at DTCC, including acting as the chief liaison with the New York City Office of Emergency Management following the 9/11 terrorist attack, and helped manage the fallout of the 2008 financial crisis.

Following the financial crisis, Thompson led DTCC’s public policy outreach efforts, and as general counsel, he was responsible for all legal and regulatory activities of the firm.

“Larry has been a trusted colleague, mentor and partner over the years, playing a significant role in many of our organisation’s most important endeavors and helping to shape the company we are today,” said Michael Bodson, president and CEO, DTCC.

“We thank Larry for all his contributions to the industry and DTCC over these past 37 years and wish him and his family the very best of health, happiness and good fortune in the future.”
