BLOOMBERG TV PRESENTS “TRAGEDY AND TRIUMPH: WALL STREET AFTER 9/11″ AIRING THIS THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 8th AT 9PM
“I said, ‘We have two choices. We can shut it down and go to our friend’s funerals. Or, if we’re going to go to work, we’re going to have to work harder than we’ve ever worked before, at a time when none of us want to work.”
–Howard Lutnick, CEO, Cantor Fitzgerald
“We’d do the opposite of whatever [bin Laden] would have tried to accomplish that day. He’d like us to run, we would stand. He’d like us to quit, we were going to do anything but that.”
–Jimmy Dunne, senior managing partner, Sandler O’Neill
Join Bloomberg Television tomorrow evening at 9 PM ET and PT as anchor Erik Schatzker tells the stories of three powerful Wall Street firms – Cantor Fitzgerald, Keefe, Bruyette & Woods and Sandler O’Neill – faced with rebuilding after being devastated by the 9/11 attacks.
Schatzker visits the firms, formerly headquartered in the World Trade Center, and talks to the people and business leaders who helped lead the recovery efforts after the companies lost hundreds of employees, decades of experience and millions in assets on 9/11. Along the way, we see how a sense of moral purpose and obligation to the survivors and fallen helped the firms endure the tragedy and rebuild.
The program features interviews with Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick; senior managing partner Jimmy Dunne, partner Jonathan Doyle, former general counsel Kate Lawton, and managing principal Fred Price of Sandler O’Neill; CEO John Duffy, insurance analyst Cliff Gallant, Vice Chairman Tom Michaud, senior executive assistant Jacky Day and Chief Equity strategist Frederick Cannon of KBW.
