The lineup at Rainmaker 2018 just keeps on getting better. We’re thrilled to announce the addition of Jeff Sprecher, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE) and Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange to the Rainmaker content program.

From one really strong “elevator pitch” to acquire the predecessor company to ICE for $1, Sprecher’s visionary leadership built a company with a market capitalization over $40 billion. Under Sprecher’s leadership, ICE grew from operating an electronic trading platform for energy swaps into a network of 14 global exchanges, including the New York Stock Exchange, through organic growth and acquisitions. Today, ICE operates seven central clearing houses that provide risk management services and support capital flows for global markets and is one of the largest financial data providers in the world.

In 2017, Intercontinental Exchange was named to the Fortune 500 and to the inaugural Fortune Future 50, a ranking of companies best positioned to adapt and deliver growth in a complex environment.

The fireside chat with Sprecher – part of Wednesday’s general session – will cover an array of topics, including his thoughts on opportunities amid change, the importance of culture and the drivers of Intercontinental Exchange’s success – the symbiotic relationship of leading technology coupled with human insight and accountability – and how we can apply these lessons to the world of sales.


“As a serial entrepreneur, Jeff’s relentless focus on the customer, his ability to learn from failures and success and investing in team culture are pillars of his success. Sales leaders will be inspired into action to do what’s needed to move towards success in 2018”

— Kyle Porter, CEO of SalesLoft —
