Greg Stecker is an English businessman who is known for his knowledge and expertise in the foreign exchange markets. Greg Stecker’s career in financial trading started when he worked for Thomas Cook financial services. Stecker quickly turned this experience into an innovative product. He developed The Virtual Trading Desk, which was a product that the world had never seen before.
Greg Secker is an entrepreneur, and as he works in the financial trading industry, he has an eye out for gaps in the system and ways that it can be improved. The Virtual Trading Desk offered traders a system that worked with foreign exchange data and was updated in real time. His success with The Virtual Trading Desk moved Stecker into a larger arena and he was begining to be recognized as a leader in the industry.
Stecker values innovation, and has never felt that once a system is in place it must stay that way. He is quick to act and change with the flow of the market. In a recent interview, he described a deck of cards that he had recently purchased. He learned how to perform a magic trick with the cards, and says that this taught him that “magic does exist, so the possibilities of what people can do are limitless”. It is clear that through out his career he has used this mindset to break through barriers and be a systems-changer, rather than simply sticking with the way things have always been done.
