|Neil Robin Wright
Date of Birth: May 28, 1971
Position: Interest Rate Options Broker
Neil lived in Tilbury, a dock development, on the north bank of the river Thames, in Essex, some 20 miles from London. This was Neil’s hometown.
Throughout secondary school his aptitude for maths and a personality that was to ensure his success in life were so apparent. Head teacher had a soft spot for Neil often forgiving him for misdemeanours, having faith that he would succeed in life whatever.
The work experience at Barclays Bank was to be instrumental in shaping his future in the world of finance. At 16 Neil landed his first job in the City of London at Barclays Bank. He worked hard and played hard too! Evenings were often spent with friends drinking in one of the many bars (some things never changed). From Barclays, to MarshallÆs and then Cantor Fitzgerald, nothing would stop Neil going up the ladder.
A new life chapter was about to start when he crosses the ocean to the land of milk and honey and many other riches!
Married and settled down, he came to love his new life in America, building his career and family with his two boys, Daniel and Jack.
Set backs? Yes a few: A car crash that nearly ended his life, virtually penniless and a divorce. Neil endured all, bounce back and rebuilt his life. Neil was a determined survivor.
It seems so unfair, that he had strived so hard to better his life from the difficult environment of his hometown, to reach the heights of the business world in New York, only to be cut down in the blinking of an eye by unknown people from another culture.
