On the back of the UAE Chapter’s Board members
visiting and participating at the Global EO Leadership Conference, Washington
DC, 23-26 April 2022, a few Board members also visited the New York Stock
Exchange (NYSE) on 29 April.
The visit, which was arranged by incoming
Membership Co Chair, Madhavan Sivashankar, CEO & Founder of Gulf
International Finance Limited (GIFL) through their US based business associates
was truly enlightening.
The EO UAE team comprised of the Chapter’s incoming
President Rishi Kohli, Strategic Alliances Chair Diana Geldenhuys, Accelerator
Chair Roma Vora and Membership Co-Chair Madhavan Sivashankar.
The organizers introduced the NYSE to the visiting
delegates and explained the history and significance of the Exchange. The
visitors also had the opportunity to witness a live news telecast by Jim Cramer
and Carl Quintanilla (both CNBC) of ‘Squawk on the Street’ fame during their
visit. Further the EO UAE board members were allowed to applaud and participate
during the opening bell for a new NYSE enlist. Last but not the least was to
view live trading happening through the various brokerage offices @ the NYSE of
global Financial Services Giants like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley etc.
The Board wishes to also thank Mr. Michael Gallucci
and Mr. Paul Davis at the NYSE for rolling out the red-carpet welcome to the EO
