Exchange ideas with world-class co-workers. We’ve hired A-listers from shipping companies, financial firms, and tech startups. At NYSHEX, you’ll feel the heat. You’ll also feel the love from a supportive and collaborative team. Every one of our team members brings their personal strengths to solving the challenges of global shipping—and their own unique stories to keep us entertained.
Meet a few of them:
Jewel is not only our Head of Compliance, but also a well-educated lawyer who spent the first few years of her career working for the Federal Maritime Commission. Her personality and work style helps the NYSHEX team consider both sides when solving challenges. She also has a soft spot for gummy bears, is a Pittsburgh Penguins fan, and can play the violin.
Our Vice President of Business Development has a BA in English Language and Literature/Letters, an MBA in Finance, and a bit of a hardcore streak. Erin vacationed in Sri Lanka during the 2006 cease-fire, was co-founder and co-editor-in-chief of a school publication called Marooned, served as captain and president of his club ice hockey team, worked as an options broker for 8+ years, and considers himself a great parallel parker—no easy feat in this city. Erin’s one of the many hardcores at NYSHEX who are tasked with building the backbone of the exchange.
In addition to having her MBA from Harvard, Jeannie has a proven record in managing strategy, finance, accounting, and more at fast-growing technology and software companies. Her experience working with startups in all stages makes her an indispensible Chief Finance Officer. She can also do headstands—this makes her a perfect fit in a culture where people are constantly standing on their heads to innovate, accomplish the impossible and do what’s never been done before.
Matt has both his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Classical Music and Bassoon Performance. After catching the coding bug, be became our Lead Product Engineer at NYSHEX. He likes the sound of transforming an age-old industry and improving global commerce for people everywhere. He still plays bassoon, but he’s no longer a starving artist.
Our Vice President for Key Accounts, Kimberly, rolls tide! A University of Alabama grad who majored in international management and minored in Spanish, she joined the world’s leading container shipping company right after graduation in their elite leadership development program. Kimberly has lived and worked in the U.S., Panama, Dubai, and Belgium. She lives for adventure and is passionate about any water-related activity—global container shipping included!
A finance and legal studies major at Drexel, Justin jumped head first into the world of ocean shipping after graduation. He was a pricing analyst for one of the world’s top ocean carriers before joining NYSHEX. As one of our first employees, Justin has made valuable contributions to sales, marketing and operations. He is now delighting customers as a Member Services Associate. Justin once went all the way to Guam just to get his scuba diving license. He’s not afraid to go to great lengths to achieve a goal or help the members of our exchange. He fits in perfectly here at NYSHEX where diving deep and going the distance is a daily occurrence as we transform global ocean transport.
