Mike Wisnefski is the CEO and co-founder of LumberXchange.

From his 20 years of trading experience, Mike has a deep understanding of market dynamics. He recognized early on that a fully integrated electronic exchange is the best approach to trading. In 2009 Mike partnered with the CME group to create liquidity in the lumber futures contract traded on the Globex marketplace. Now lumber futures and options trade exclusively on the electronic platform.

Prior to becoming an independent trader at the CME, Mike was VP of Business Development at Bloch Lumber, a wholesale lumber distributor.  In this role, he started a program that imported lumber from Europe. Before that, he learned to trade on the electronic financial futures markets of Europe and the USA at International Trading Group.
