The New York Stock Exchange is losing another top executive: Larry Leibowitz, the guy known around Wall Street as the chief operating officer of stock exchange parent NYSE Euronext, and just about everywhere else as the brother of “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart. NYSE Euronext was bought this month by an upstart rival from Atlanta, IntercontinentalExchange Group Inc., and Leibowitz will leave the combined company at the end of the year, an NYSE spokesman confirmed on Tuesday. Patrick Healy, CEO of the Issuer Advisory Group, is a fan. He called Leibowitz “the adult in the room” who “did right” by the issuing companies, and he bemoaned the “significant long-term consequences” of Leibowitz’s departure. [MarketWatch]
