ICE Futures Singapore and ICE Clear Singapore will be headed by Lucas Schmeddes, as President and Chief Operating Officer. Schmeddes was previously Chief Operating Officer of ICE Endex in the Netherlands. Jennifer Ilkiw will be Vice President, ICE for the Asia Pacific region.

The following directors will serve on the boards of ICE Futures Singapore and ICE Clear Singapore: Jeffrey C. Sprecher, Chairman and CEO, ICE; David S. Goone, Chief Strategy Officer, ICE; Vijay Iyengar, Founder and Managing Director of Agrocorp International Pte Ltd; Tan Soo Nan, CEO, Singapore Pools (Private) Limited and Ang Swee Tian, former President of the Singapore Exchange Ltd.

The exchange and clearing house are expected to transition to the ICE trading and clearing platforms in the second half of 2014.
