Celebrating the 19th Annual Irish America Wall Street 50 Awards
On Wednesday, October 12, Irish America celebrated the 19th Annual Wall Street 50 Awards Dinner at the Metropolitan Club in Manhattan. The Wall Street 50 recognizes the most exciting and innovative Irish American and Irish-born leaders in finance, profiled in the October / November 2016 issue of Irish America.
Daniel Keegan, co-head of Global Equities for Citigroup, delivered the keynote speech, a humble and funny talk that tied his own early academic struggle with the greater idea of teamwork on Wall Street, including his predecessor and mentor at Citi Rick Bartlett, and the Irish obligation to aid today’s immigrants.
Patricia Harty, co-founder and editor-in-chief of Irish America, and Niall O’Dowd, founding publisher, presented Keegan with the Keynote Speaker Award, a House of Waterford Crystal Lismore Essence Vase.
