Rising star: Will Boeckman, head of US electronic sales, Citadel Securities

Will Boeckman, Citadel Securities’ head of electronic trading for fixed income, currencies, and commodities, named Carlyle Group founder David Rubenstein’s recently-released book “How to Lead: Wisdom from the World’s Greatest CEOs, Founders, and Game Changers” as his go-to pick.

“It’s kind of an anthology of various industries,” Boeckman said of the book, which aggregates highlights from Rubenstein’s interviews with noteworthy individuals like Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, and former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, whom he spoke with on his eponymous show on Bloomberg TV.

“A key takeaway from these stories is the importance of finding your passion. I’m obviously very passionate about finance,” Boeckman said, “and it’s something that was mentioned by a few of the people” that Rubenstein interviewed.
