A 40-year Wall Street veteran, Richard Naso’s career began in 1965 when he responded to a New York Times advertisement for a “squad” (runner) position at the NYSE. Over the next ten years, he continued to take on greater responsibility within the organization, moving into more senior positions while also serving in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves.
Mr. Naso purchased his seat on the NYSE in 1976, when he formed Richard C. Naso Company. In 1983, Naso formed his second member firm, Floor Broker Network, which is now FBN Securities. Floor Broker Network also operated two fully-licensed branch offices in London and Switzerland.
Naso was a multiple seat owner and a member of the NYSE for more than 26 years. He was affectionately known as “Mr. IBM” for building a customer base that represented a large percentage of the volume traded on a daily basis. On April 19th, 1983, Mr. Naso executed the first program trade orders (over 5 million shares in 60 S&P names) in the history of the NYSE.
Mr. Naso holds Series 7, 24, and 55 securities licenses through Celadon Financial Group
