October 15, 2019, 18:00 – 19:30, Fulbright University Vietnam, 105 Ton Dat Tien, District 7, HCMC

Open discussion with NASDAQ Vice-Chairman Meyer Sandy Frucher

The financial system controls massive swaths of our lives – from the companies that shape our days to the prices that we see in the store. However, financial markets are prone to dangerous corruption. What can we do to keep corruption out of our financial markets? And what role can capital markets, (e.g., the stock market), play to prevent this dangerous behavior?

On 15th October 2019 from 18:00 to 19:30, as part of our Moral Leadership talk series, we invite you to join Meyer Sandy Frucher, vice-chairman of Nasdaq and former CEO of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange for an open talk and discussions on the challenges and opportunities of the capital market.

Mr. Frucher received an undergraduate degree in Government from Columbia University and a graduate degree in Public Administration and International Development from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

Mr. Frucher has more than 40 years of experience in business, government and labor relations. Among other positions, Meyer Sandy Frucher was Chief Labor Negotiator for the state of New York from 1978 to 1983.  He served as Executive Vice President of Development for Olympia and York from 1988 to 1996, where he coordinated and oversaw all development projects in the U.S. Mr. Frucher led two major, quasi-public authorities in New York where he was responsible for the development, financing and construction of complex, large-scale public and private facilities.

Mr. Frucher was appointed Chairman and CEO of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange (PHLX) in June 1998. Under his leadership, the PHLX has emerged as a technology and product innovator among U.S. marketplaces, before acquisition by NASDAQ in 2008.
