THE TICKER  MUSEUM NEWS MoAF and Cheddar Collaborate on New C-Suite Video Series: “Disrupting Wall Street” In October, the Museum launched a new monthly video series featuring C-Suite executives from across the financial indus- try discussing “Disrupting Wall Street: The Power of FinTech,” a conversation on how technology is impacting their own companies and their particular industry segments. A follow-up to the recent CEO Video Series, the C-Suite Series Part 2 continues the successful collaboration between the Museum and Cheddar Media, a live and on demand news network cov- ering technology, media and entertain- ment, which broadcasts daily from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. The first video in the series, featur- ing Museum President & CEO David Cowen with Cheddar Founder & CEO Jon Steinberg, debuted on October 25 on the Museum’s YouTube channel, as well as on Cheddar’s website and across both organizations’ social media platforms. According to MoAF President David Cowen, the impact of technology on the transformation of financial services is among the most critical topics in the industry today. “The new C-Suite Series will help us share personal insights on how technology is reshaping the financial industry and broadening access to finan- cial services,” he said. The companies participating in this series (as of publication) are Fitch Solu- tions (November), Broadridge Financial Solutions (December), Protiviti (Janu- ary), Citi (February), TIAA (March), CommonBond (April), New York Life (May) and Chase (June). Cheddar CEO and Founder Jon Stein- berg said, “I’m excited to continue work- ing with the Museum of American Finance on ‘Disrupting Wall Street.’ Stories about innovation and disruption in finance are at the core of what we are doing at Ched- dar, so we jumped on the opportunity to bring even more of this substantive con- tent to our audience.” Each month, the featured executives, with such titles as President, Chief Tech- nology Officer, Chief Digital Officer, Chief Information Officer and Chief Innovation Officer, will be featured on the Museum’s YouTube channel. They will appear on CheddarTV, as well.  UPCOMING EVENTS CALENDAR Nov 14 Evening Lecture Series: “Democratizing Finance.” Fireside chat featuring PayPal CEO Dan Schulman, followed by panel discussion. 6:15–8:00 p.m. Program followed by Q&A and reception.
