The Heritage Foundation’s Board of Trustees elected Chicagoan Tony Saliba to the board at its recent meeting in San Diego.
Here’s more about Saliba, who is also a Heritage member:
Saliba is an executive managing director at ConvergEx Group, a firm that provides technologies for asset managers and financial intermediaries. There, he is also chief executive officer of LiquidPoint, an options technology company he started 13 years ago that was bought by ConvergEx in 2007.
Saliba, who was profiled in the best-selling book “Market Wizards,” currently manages options trading platforms for investors. He got his start at the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and gradually expanded his trading horizons to include Standard & Poor’s 500 contracts on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, as well as agricultural and interest rate products traded on the Chicago Board of Trade.
Saliba was elected a Heritage trustee at a recent board meeting in San Diego. He holds a bachelor of science degree in accounting from Indiana University. He and his wife, Moira, have a son and a daughter. They are financial supporters of various causes, including Catholic Charities; the Evans Scholars Foundation, which allows disadvantaged children to attend college, and the Gary Sinise Foundation, which assists men and women of the armed forces wounded in defense of America.
Heritage’s 24-member board helps guide the organization as we fight for conservative reforms in Washington and around the nation.
