Daniel Keegan is co-head of Global Equities at Citigroup. Keegan, who was appointed co-head of the group in May, previously served for three years as head of Equities Americas at Citi and joined Citi in 2007 as part of the bank’s purchase of ADT as head of Electronic Trading.
Born in New Jersey, Daniel attended the University of Notre Dame, receiving a B.A. and later, a J.D. at Notre Dame Law School. Before joining Citigroup, Daniel was employed at J.P. Morgan Chase, where he established the Electronic Execution services business, and later sat on the executive committee and board of directors at Automated Trading Desk.
A third-generation Irish American with ancestors from Co. Meath on his father’s side and counties Meath and Louth on his mother’s, Daniel lives in New York with his wife, Elizabeth, and four children, Danny, Rosemary, Margaret, and Katherine.
“When you think about the Irish and the ancestry, front and center in that consideration is a generation after generation of people who distinguish themselves by working hard,” Keegan told Irish America.
Keegan is the keynote speaker for the 2016 Irish America Wall Street 50 Awards Dinner, and will receive the Keynote Speaker Award, a House of Waterford Crystal Lismore Essence Vase.
