Launchcast - Ep. 5 Brad Katsuyama
As CEO, Brad oversees both the long-term strategic direction of IEX and its day-to-day management. As a former head risk trader and head of electronic trading at RBC Capital Markets, he is hands-on in the development of the products and services that IEX builds for clients.
Katsuyama was one of the co-founders of IEX in 2012 after their team uncovered ways that the existing stock exchanges were selling high speed technology and data to the detriment of long-term investors. Katsuyama and his team’s pursuit of a fairer market has been chronicled in Michael Lewis’ book Flash Boys, as well as in outlets ranging from 60 Minutes to the New York Times Magazineand Bloomberg Markets. Katsuyama was honored as part of New York Times Dealbook’s inaugural class of Groundbreakers.
How do champions think and what do they do to achieve greatness in their careers and in life? What are their mindset and habits? And what advice would they give their 21 year old self in order to launch successfully? The Coach K Center on Leadership & Ethics (COLE) at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business is excited to announce the launch of its first-ever podcast: Launchcast: Podcast of Champions. Hosted by our very own Sanyin Siang, the podcast shares stories that provide insight on the "Champion's mindset" -- people who aim to be the best in their fields and the best version of themselves, without compromising what matters in life.
