ICE Futures Canada names Vannan as C0O

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, April 10 (Reuters) - ICE Futures Canada named Canadian grain industry executive Brad Vannan as its new president and chief operating officer, effective April 30, IntercontinentalExchange Inc ICE.N said on Thursday.

Vannan was vice-president for grain marketing at Agricore United, Canada’s largest grain handler, until it was taken over by Saskatchewan Wheat Pool last year.

He had also served on the board of governors of the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange, which ICE bought last year and renamed ICE Futures Canada.

The exchange is known for its flagship canola futures contract.

Former president Will Hill announced in February he would leave the exchange for personal reasons. (Reporting by Roberta Rampton, editing by Matthew Lewis)
