"I am honored to say I have known Randy professionally for over 25 years. I met Randy on the trading floor of the American Stock Exchange. In all the years that I have known Randy, I know him to be one of the most honest and intelligent persons, that I have come across while in the business. Randy had the ability to keep his senses while chaos was all around, in those days you had to be a quick thinker, and able to thrive in pressure situations. Randy's ability to analyze risk in derivative products, were as good as anyone I had ever seen. He was always willing to help someone, who asked for his time. To this day Randy remains a friend who I can call on at any time for advice or questions, I would recommend Randy without hesitation or reservation. He is definitely one of the good guys."
