He served in compliance, accounting, managerial, consulting and auditing roles for such firms as: (i) Compliance Solutions; (ii) Fidelity Investments; (iii) Nomura Securities; (iv) Ameriprise; (v) GFI Group; (vi) Westport Resources; (vii) Bear Stearns; and, (viii) Thomson McKinnon Securities (and its affiliate, TM Asset Management).
