Congratulations U.S. Options Lifetime Contribution Awards: Saliba, Najarian, May, Schwarz et al.

The 2019 Lifetime Contribution Award recipients will be honored at this year's Options Industry Conference, hosted by the MIAX Exchange Group™ (MIAX™) and OCC in Miami, Florida, on May 1-3.


The Options Industry Conference will honor the 2019 Lifetime Contribution Award recipients, who will be inducted into the newly-formed "Crowd of Fame."

Koppien, Joe Levin, Daniel May, Dennis May, William H. Morgan, Jon Najarian, Anthony Saliba, Andy Schwarz, Lee Tenzer, and Thomas Young.

Tip of the hat to John Smollen of MIAX for making this happen. The recipients of the Lifetime Contribution Award will be inducted into the OIC's newly-formed "Crowd of Fame", at the Options Industry Conference May 1-3 in Miami.

The Crowd of Fame honors contributions that make options markets more resilient, transparent and innovative to the benefit of retail investors, financial advisors, and institutions who use these markets. Great!
