|Occupation||Director, Business Development, Global Head of Cryptocurrencies|
John Tornatore serves as director of business development and global head of cryptocurrencies at Cboe Global Markets. He is responsible for the US and international marketing initiatives to grow the Cboe and Cboe Futures Exchange. In his cryptocurrency role, which began in January 2018, he is responsible for developing new business in that space globally.
Since taking this role, Tornatore has focused on reaching out to the institutional trader and cryptocurrency communities in order to facilitate successful relationships between those offering crypto-related services and their customers. In a 2018 Q&A article with Markets Media, Tornatore said that his goals as global head of cryptocurrencies are "threefold:" to be the face of Cboe in the crypto community, to reach out to the futures commission merchant (FCM) community to help their clients, and to inform customers, to "work with customers and prospects—get them the information they need." He also said that Cboe intends on continuing to expand the range of crypto-related products for its customers in the coming years.
