George Sladoje is a consultant, entrepreneur, exchange executive and financial services professional.

Recently he served as the chief financial officer of Bcause, a crypto currency mining and exchange start-up that is in bankruptcy. He left Bcause after they filed for bankruptcy.[1][2]

He has worked with Nasdaq, the Chicago Stock Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade.[3][4]

He served as the chief operating officer for the NASDAQ OMX Commodities Clearing Company after it acquired a firm he founded, North American Energy Credit and Clearing.[5]

Sladoje was the chief executive officer of the California Power Exchange in 2001 when the exchange declared bankruptcy amid California's energy crisis.[6] He was recruited as an outsider with experience in the trading and exchange space to be an executive vice president. He subsequently succeeded Dennis Loughridge as CEO.[7][8]

Background

Before moving to California, Sladoje had formerly held positions as executive vice-president and chief financial officer of the Chicago Stock Exchange and its clearing and trust subsidiaries. He was also executive vice-president of the Chicago Board of Trade where he directed the exchange's operations and its financial and administrative functions.

Sladoje was forced out of this job as chief financial officer of the CBOT by a controversy that the Chicago Tribune reported Sladoje was "weathering a humiliating internal probe of reports that he attempted to collect personal information on a CBOT grain trader." The Tribune reported "The exchange's second-highest-paid staffer and a right-hand man to CBOT President Thomas R. Donovan, decided to leave even though a protracted investigation by a former U.S. district judge had exonerated him."[9]

While at the CBOT, Sladoje served as treasurer for the CBOT's political action committee, Auction Markets Political Action Committee of the Chicago Board of Trade, AkA AMPAC/CBT.[10]

Prior to his trading experiences, Sladoje served in various financial roles including seven years with a Big 8 public accounting firm.

Education

Sladoje earned MBA in finance from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, and a BS Degree in business administration from the Ohio State University. He earned his certified public accountant (CPA) designation in Illinios in 1971.[11]
