9780060510299: On Top of the World: Cantor Fitzgerald, Howard Lutnick, and 9/11: A Story of Loss and Renewal

Of all the companies affected by the attacks of 11 September, none was more devastated than Cantor Fitzgerald, the financial services conglomerate, who lost 658 people. CEO Howard Lutnick survived only because he had taken his son to school that day. He vowed to restore the company. but how can you focus on work when your brother and best friend are among those murdered? How can you grieve when all the families are looking to you to be strong and help them? How can you help them when some of your rivals are trying to take advantage and you have to save the business? How Lutnick and those around him sought to balance all of these tasks and succeeded is a truly inspirational tale from the supposedly heartless world of Wall Street.
