Research/Advisory firm founder and industry veteran recognized for influence on market data industry
Douglas B. Taylor, Founder and Managing Director of by Burton-Taylor International Consulting (part of TP ICAP’s Data & Analytics division), has been inducted into the Inside Market Data Hall of Fame.
Following the North American Financial Information Summit conference in New York on May 21, Taylor was recognized during the Inside Market Data/Inside Reference Data Awards Evening for his influence in the market data industry, his revolutionary measurement of industry share and growth, and for his contribution to the strategic, product, marketing and sales management of key market participants in North America, South America, Europe and Asia.
“I’m incredibly honored and humbled to be inducted into the Market Data Hall of Fame and join such a prestigious group of past inductees,” said Taylor. “To be recognized by one’s peers is truly special and unexpected. My deep thanks go out to Gene Nagler, Hubert Holmes, Brian de Lacy, Geert Linnebank and the many colleagues who helped to shape my understanding of this impactful industry and led to any contribution I was able to make.”
“Douglas B. Taylor might well deserve a spot in the Inside Market Data Hall of Fame based on his many years of dedicated service within the market data industry alone. But what makes Doug stand out is the business he built providing authoritative market share and expenditure figures for the industry as a whole – something that he started as competitive analysis projects at the vendors where he worked over the years, and continued under the guise of his own company, Burton-Taylor International Consulting,” says Max Bowie, managing editor of WatersTechnology. “It’s been a genuine pleasure working with Doug over the years, and I’m honored to induct him into the Inside Market Data Hall of Fame, where he rightly belongs.”
Taylor founded Burton-Taylor in 2006 to help information companies improve performance through improved market intelligence, strategic planning and revenue generation. The company’s industry figures have become the recognized benchmark in the market data space. Burton-Taylor was acquired by TP ICAP in 2016.
