David Prosperi has had a long career in public relations in the markets and politics. John Lothian interviewed Prosperi over Zoom about his career and the events that saw him move from national politics to the White House and to jobs at the Department of Energy and the Department of the Interior. He was later recruited to join the CBOT to work with CBOT CEO Tom Donovan and entered the world of markets, where he remained the rest of his career. He worked for the four biggest and most important financial giants in Chicago: the Chicago Board of Trade, the CME Group, Aon and the OCC. The interview includes stories of being with President Reagan the day he was shot, working with a soccer club in the Premier League to tell their business story, and helping turn the OCC into an industry thought leader. Here is our interview with David Prosperi.
