January 12th, 2023 — Trillium hosted its annual firm-wide Awards Dinner celebrating individual and collective achievement. This year’s event was held at the historic Ziegfeld Ballroom, in New York City, with traders from the Chicago and Miami offices also in attendance.
The evening featured a number of speeches and awards, including the Spirit of Trillium, the Top Trainer of the Year, and the coveted Trader of the Year award. The awards were presented by members of Trillium’s esteemed management team.
The ceremony commenced with a speech filled with gratitude and excitement from Trillium’s founder, Lee Maschler, followed by spirited remarks from both Barry Schwarz, Trillium’s CEO, and Howard Teitelman, Trillium’s Chief Strategy Officer. The event proceeded with featured video interludes from various members serving as quality entertainment and an eloquent transition to the award presentation. Ben Baller, Trillium’s recently appointed Managing Director of Trading, presented the trader awards with several receiving accolades for their loyalty and tenure, most notably Alphonse Soued, a veteran trader who’s now been with the firm for 20 years. The ceremony’s conclusion was marked with the honor of Trader of the Year bestowed upon Nathan McWilliams; a trader previously recognized in 2019 as Rookie of the Year.
Trillium appreciates every opportunity to recognize, honor, and celebrate the exceptional performance of its traders, and our night at the Ziegfeld provided the perfect platform to do just that. Following the remarkable expansion of technology and proprietary tools, the introduction of an Advanced Continued Education program, and a newly designed Knowledge Base in 2022, Trillium will concentrate on analytics, training, and recruitment to sustain its momentum and success in 2023 and beyond.
