Cromwell Coulson

R. Cromwell Coulson is President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of OTC Markets Group, Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM), which operates financial marketplaces for 10,000 U.S. and global securities. Over the past two decades, Cromwell has transformed this previously opaque and inefficient phone-based marked into fully modern, electronic and transparent financial marketplaces. Today, OTC Markets Group operates three marketplaces that organize securities based on the quality and quantity of disclosure they provide to investors – OTCQX, The Best Marketplace for established, investor-focused U.S. and international companies; OTCQB, The Venture Marketplace for entrepreneurial and development stage companies; and OTC Pink, The Open Marketplace for brokers to trade all types of securities. Cromwell is a strong advocate of improving access to capital for small companies and trading transparency. He has testified before Congress and spoken on these and other issues at numerous industry conferences. He also supports diverse choice and competition among trading venues that leverage the power of networks to efficiently connect consumers and suppliers of liquidity.
