William J. Brodsky

Chairman, Cedar Street Asset Management
Retired Chairman, CBOE Holding Inc., and the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE)
(May 2014 to Feb. 28, 2017)

Brodsky brings to our board of directors extensive finance, regulatory, and business management experience gained from nearly 35 years of combined service as CEO of The Chicago Board Options Exchange, CBOE Holdings Inc. and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. His more than 40 years of experience in the financial markets industry and recognition as a leading industry advocate in securities, commodities and futures markets policy and regulation, is particularly valuable in his service on the WEC Energy Group Finance Committee where he can apply his keen insights to the company’s financial strategy and investment management matters. Brodsky’s extensive knowledge of the economic and governmental challenges as well as policy issues facing a public company doing business in Illinois is of great value to the board, as is his extensive past and present experience serving on the boards of numerous highly visible not-for-profit organizations in the metro Chicago area.
