Lawrence McMillan, CEO, McMillan Asset Management

Mr. McMillan literally wrote the book on options trading. Options as a Strategic Investment, the best seller published 35 years ago, has now sold over 300,000 copies and is commonly referred to as the "Options Bible". It is the first book people reach for when they are interested in truly understanding volatility and derivatives trading.

An active trader since the early 1970s, Mr. McMillan is widely sought for speaking engagements and education. He edits and distributes a number of publications based on his firm's proprietary work and is often seen on CNBC and Bloomberg TV and cited in The Wall Street Journal, Barron's and other major publications.

Prior to founding his own firm, Mr. McMillan was a proprietary trader at two major brokerage firms - primarily Thomson McKinnon Securities, where he ran the Equity Arbitrage Department for nine years.
