We are tremendously excited to honor Joe Moglia tonight at our third annual Freeing Voices, Changing Lives Benefit Gala. We are so grateful for his commitment to support our cause. For those of you who won’t be in attendance, here is his bio from the Gala Program.
In the business world, both at TD AMERITRADE
and at Merrill Lynch, Joe Moglia has led, motivated,
united, excited, organized, evaluated, sold, recruited, been the key decision maker, strategized, developed and executed world-class plans in an extraordinary way for almost two decades on a national and global scale. In seven years as CEO at TD AMERITRADE, share-holders enjoyed a 600% return despite the worst economic crises since the Great Depression.The Firm’s market cap grew from $700 million to $10 billion, client assets from $24 billion to $280 billion, led the industry in consolidation, and became the global leader in equity transactions.
He was a better business leader because of his experience as a football coach. Over 16 years, he won two Ivy championships at Dartmouth,set school and national records at Lafayette, turned two high school programs around, wrote a book and numerous articles in national coaching journals, and has been or will be inducted into two halls of fame.
In 2005, Moglia was honored by the National Italian American Foundation for his business leadership accomplishments. He was again honored by the Columbus Citizens Foundation in 2006 for his life–time of professional achievements and in 2008 he was nominated for the US Medal of Honor. Moglia is the author of “Coach Yourself to Success: Winning the Investment Game” and is proud of the fact that he is the only published author of books both on sports and investing. Problems with stuttering have never interfered with his goals and he has always been at the top of his game,whether on the trading floor or on the playing field. It’s apparent that Moglia’s game plan has always produced a winning streak.
