I came to Seton Hall in 2003 to design the Center for Securities Trading and Business Analytics for the Stillman School. Subsequently I also led the teams to implement the Sharkey Sport Polling Center, the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies and the Market Research Center. Although most of my experience is with investment banks, I actually began my career teaching Computer Science at Ohio University. I then moved to the University of Illinois to work in technology research before taking a position that led to thirty years on Wall Street. “Sell Side” firms have engaged me in managing and restructuring the workflow and the processes of every department through the full trade life cycle, front/middle/back office; order receipt to regulatory reporting. Recently the radical changes to the global regulatory landscape have been the focus of my research. I am also the advisor for undergraduate finance majors.
Wall Street: Salomon Brothers, Manufacturers Hanover Trust, Chemical Bank, Citigroup, Société Générale (Cowen), Nomura Securities, Deutsche Bank, Moody’s Investor Services, Lehman Brothers, Barclays and UBS.
