Stacey Cunningham is one of six children and refers to herself as "the well-adjusted middle child." She has consistently focused on the job at hand without thinking about being the rare female in the room.

These traits have served her well. In May, she became the first female president in the 226 years of the New York Stock Exchange.

Daughter of a stock trader, Ms. Cunningham began her career interning as a NYSE floor specialist. Later, she spent 5 1/2 years at the NASDAQ exchange, and then moved back to the NYSE, where she has been since 2012.
