From the Haworth College of Business to the New York Stock Exchange trading room floor. Alexander Buskirk, a self-proclaimed “jack of all things finance,” uses billions of data points to create frameworks that identify controls and implement automated, elegant solutions for financial firms. He was recently part of a team that created a framework for the Bank of New York Mellon’s NEXEN platform, which generates millions of controlled records, from trade to pricing tolerances. Buskirk is currently working to implement these same controls and solutions into STP’s ControlOps© system.
Buskirk received BNY Mellon’s Accountant of the Year Award for leading the implementation of a net asset valuations system in India. His team also received the Fund Accounting Team of the Year Award for the project. He has had the opportunity to visit the NYSE trading room floor and aspires to be part of the bell ringing ceremony someday.
