Bernie Dan

Sun Trading

Bernie Dan, CEO

An authority in the Financial Services arena, Bernard “Bernie” Dan is a seasoned seniorlevel executive who has driven remarkable organic growth through his visionary turnaround initiatives. With an extensive global background, Bernie has led large, multisite teams from the world’s most formidable financial centers during volatile market periods. Possessing an exhaustive knowledge of crises management, regulatory compliance, financial administration, and Washington policy‐making, Bernie is a recognized leader within financial services, particularly as it relates to cash and derivative products.

Several weeks before the 2011 new year, Bernie joined the Chicago‐based proprietary trading firm Sun Holdings, LLC as CEO, where he had formerly sat on the Board of Directors. Sun Holdings, LLC, founded in 2002, is the parent of Sun Trading, a privately held registered U.S. broker‐dealer dedicated to algorithmic trading across a range of asset classes in the world’s financial markets.

In 2008, Bernie was hired at MF Global Ltd. as North American COO, but quickly earned the role of CEO, charged with strategic planning, mission creation, and corporate reorganization/positioning as a market leader following an isolated trading event that drastically reduced market capitalization. In a challenging economy, Bernie improved stock prices from $2.00 to $7.33 per share and restored its reputation and overall credibility in under two years. Developing and implementing the ambitious plan was just the start—Bernie had to simultaneously garner widespread support from shareholders, key investors, and employees alike. With clear direction, he retooled the skill set of a 3,000+ employee base across 12 countries and restructured the business around an ever‐expanding portfolio of diverse products and services.

The positive transformation was equally as dramatic when Bernie served as CEO at the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT). Here, Bernie led the exchange’s demutualization in 2005, initial public offering in 2005, and an unanticipated $13B merger with Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) in 2007. Breaking revenue and volume records for sixconsecutive years, his progressive approach also resulted in the implementation of electronic trading despite significant member resistance. Prior to his tenure at CBOT, Bernie spent 16 years with Cargill Investor Services, Inc., diligently working his way from General Accountant to President / CEO, directing 550+ personnel. Under his leadership, CIS expanded its offering of product and services, resulting in a $25+M increase in profits. Upon college graduation, Bernie launched his career with Staff Auditor positions at National Futures Association and Schultz and Chez, both in Chicago. During his formative years, Bernie realized that the financial services industry itself was inherently exciting to him, and he thrived in this global, around‐the‐clock environment that presented new challenges based upon the daily market.

Bernie is dedicated to numerous professional and nonprofit organizations, where he has served on Boards of Directors and in other leadership roles throughout the years. Presently, he sits on the Board of Directors at Fenwick High School, where he also serves as a member of the Executive Committee and was Co‐Chair of a large capital campaign. Extensive prior involvement has included board memberships with Joint Asian Derivatives Exchange, Board of Trade Clearing Corporation, Penson Financial Services, OneChicago, and The Deposit Trust & Clearing Corporation, among others. He previously served as Midwestern Regional Director of Operation HOPE, Inc., a nonprofit investment bank and provider of financial literacy and economic empowerment programs.

A proud alumnus of Saint John’s University, Bernie received his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting in 1983. He currently sits on their Board of Regents and serves as a valued member of the Investment and Academic Affairs Committees. He completed the Executive Program at the University of Minnesota in 1995 and holds his FINRA Series 4, 7, 24, and 63 licenses, as well as the NCFE Series 3 Associated Person designation.
