Wayne P. Luthringshausen was an exchange and options clearing house executive who was the longtime chairman of the board and chief executive officer of OCC, the clearinghouse for U.S. stock options trading.[1] He retired on December 31, 2013 after 40 years with the clearinghouse. He passed away in August 2021.

Former OCC president and COO Michael Cahill took over as CEO in January 2014.[2][3] Former CME Group CEO Craig Donohue replaced Luthringshausen as OCC chairman.[4]

Background[edit]

Luthringshausen began his career in the securities and futures industry in 1963 with two regional firms in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1970, he joined the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) to assume an active role in the development of the first central marketplace for the trading of listed options contracts, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).

In April 1973, when trading was launched at the CBOE, Luthringshausen was appointed executive vice president and secretary of the Chicago Board Options Exchange Clearing Corporation (CBOECC) and in August, 1973, was appointed President and Chief Executive Officer. In January, 1975, the CBOECC became OCC with the approval of the Securities and Exchange Commission. OCC currently performs the issuance, clearance, guarantee and settlement functions for all U.S. securities options exchanges and other entities.

In 2002, he received the first annual "Options Industry Appreciation Award" (later renamed the Joseph W. Sullivan Award) on behalf of the entire options industry.[5]

In 2015, Luthringshausen was inducted into the Futures Industry Association's Futures Hall of Fame.[6]
