Earlier in his career, Mr. Moranda was an Application Manager and Senior Project Manager with Heller Financial Capital, a part of GE Capital. Prior to that, he was a senior consultant with Accenture.
“We are pleased that Luke has agreed to join our leadership team,” said Craig S. Donohue, OCC Executive Chairman. “He brings a proven track record of success in driving technology change in a critical business environment that requires exceptional levels of resiliency. This is important as we continue to invest in new technology and people that will strengthen our capabilities to meet the ever-changing marketplace expectations for systemically important market utilities such as OCC.”
Mr. Tamayo earlier had announced plans to retire in 2015. OCC conducted a national search and identified Mr. Moranda as a successor. Donohue said, “On behalf of our board and management team, I want to thank Ray for his years of service to OCC. He had many accomplishments, including modernization of our infrastructure, increased cyber preparedness, and the implementation of ENCORE prices. I appreciate Ray’s willingness to stay on for a period of time as part of our succession planning to create a seamless transition for Luke, our team, and our clearing member firms. “
