State Street Corp. has named John Plansky as the new head of its Global Exchange data and analytics unit.

In this role, Plansky will be responsible for global strategy, new product development and "developing solutions for clients that help them manage increasingly complex data, search for better performance, focus on attracting assets and meet heightened risk challenges," the bank said in a press release this week.

Plansky will report to Lou Maiuri, executive vice president at State Street and head of global markets. Maiuri previously also headed Global Exchange.

Plansky joins State Street from PricewaterhouseCoopers where he led the U.S. strategy and global platforms businesses and was a member of the advisory financial services leadership team. Prior to the acquisition of Booz & Co. by PwC, Plansky was a senior partner at Booz leading the technology practice and serving as a senior advisor to global financial institutions, including State Street.
