Episode 127: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with former Wall Street Managing Director, Manny Santayana.

“Do the right thing and fear no man!” That is the mantra Manny lives by.

Despite almost getting fired from his first sales job at IBM, Manny went on to become a top salesperson at IBM and then for a firm on Wall Street. In 2002, he led an algorithmic electronic trading team at Credit Suisse, where he increased the sales from $2.5 million to $1 billion+ across 47 countries. They ranked #1 in the world and executed 9% of the total US trading volume.

Later in his career, he became Head of Sales at NASDAQ, and is responsible for rebuilding the entire NASDAQ sales force after their global trading clients were adversely affected by the Facebook IPO technical trading disaster in 2012. Throughout his life and career, Manny has seen it all, experiencing extreme highs and lows, and what he calls the 4 C’s of Sociology: Cooperation, Competition, Conflict, and Corruption. Manny explains how he navigated these phases and the greatest lessons that Wall Street taught him about life.
