In this newly created position, Stump will lead and coordinate FIA’s relations with Congress and participate in the development and implementation of the group’s legislative and regulatory strategy, FIA President and CEO Walt Lukken said in a news release.

Stump will join FIA from the Washington office of NYSE Euronext, where she is vice president of government affairs focusing on issues of importance to the group’s derivatives businesses.

Before joining the New York Stock Exchange, she held senior staff positions at both the Senate and House Agriculture committees, where she was involved in matters pertaining to the oversight of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the reauthorization of the Commodity Exchange Act, and most recently, the negotiations for the derivatives title of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
