Rick began his career in the electronic trading industry. As owner and operator of EXT Brokerage, he was a pioneer in direct access trading, offering individuals and fund managers real-time, instant access to electronic trading platforms. He grew EXT from a new firm in 1998 to one of the largest direct access providers in the country, executing more than one percent of all Nasdaq trading in the world in less than five years.
During his time at EXT, Rick moved into software programming to help clients automate trading strategies. After selling the company, he continued trading and programming for clients in electronic futures, commodities and options, and developed a specialty in mobile app development.
