Taking Over the Tech World
Raised in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, Rick McVey’s age is 58. His father was an oil distributor, with a hobby in stocks investment.
McVey’s interest in bonds and stocks peaked at a young age. He earned an MBA from Indiana University in 1983. After working in a Cleveland bank, he went on to join the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
In 1991, he moved to J.P. Morgan and quickly moved up the ranks to become chief of U.S. fixed income sales. By then, the Internet began having a major impact on businesses, and it was the perfect time to kickstart his own company.
McVey established MarketAxess in April 2000, and has been instrumental in developing the company to be a leading electronic platform for corporate bonds, and providing an efficient marketplace for global investors.

Explaining the idea behind his company, he said, “I saw a market need. Investors didn’t want to go to 15 different dealer sites like they did on the phone; they wanted a real central marketplace.”
McVey received many awards for his entrepreneurial initiatives, and now serves on the boards of several prominent institutions.
