robert rendineBob Rendine, who led global corporate communications for NYSE Euronext through its 2013 acquisition by Intercontinental Exchange, is slated to join Sard Verbinnen & Co in September.

Rendine's three-and-a-half-year NYSE tenure included its 2012 merger with Deutsche Borse that was blocked by the European Commission. He stepped down at the end of 2013.

Sard Verbinnen, which will add Rendine as a managing director in New York on Sept. 15, worked with NYSE Euronext through both deals.

He led a team of 75 in six countries and was responsible for the full range of corporate communications across NYSE Euronext, including marketing, media relations, executive communications and broadcasting.

Rendine was previously VP of corporate affairs and comms. for GE Capital in London and Stamford, Conn., and earlier held top comms. posts at the American Stock Exchange and GTech Corp.

Rendine started out in politics as chief of staff to ex-Rep. Claudine Schneider (R-R.I.).
