Back to the Exchange, if it's still there

Does the name Jeffrey Sprecher mean anything to you?  Well, he's the Chairman and CEO of the Atlanta-based Intercontinental Exchange, or ICE -- owners, since about a year ago, of the New York Stock Exchange.  Interesting article in the Journal about his efforts to completely re-do the NYSE.

He looks like this ...

Pretty vanilla.  Hard to believe so many people can't stand him.

Given that the first Wall Street painting I ever exhibited was of NYSE CEO Dick Grasso, it might be fun to circle around, the way rabbits do if the dogs are chasing them, and paint Sprecher.

In the last year, the number of NYSE employees has dropped from about 4,000 to half that number.  That, I'm thinking, is a lot of angry people.

Also worth noting:  I never trust public figures of whom there are very few photographs.  And there aren't a lot of this guy, relatively speaking.
