Founder and Co-CEO
Tom Sosnoff is recognized as an online brokerage trailblazer and one of the most sought-after financial educators in the industry. A former floor trader, he became one of Chicago's most well-known serial entrepreneurs in fintech when he built a breakthrough options-trading platform, thinkorswim, later sold to TD-Ameritrade for $750 million. Mr. Sosnoff then launched tastytrade, the fastest-growing online financial network in the world. Leveraging over 20 years of experience as a market maker for the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and one of the original OEX traders in the S&P 100 Index pit, he pursued his vision to educate retail investors in options trading and to build a superior trading platform and a brokerage firm that specialized in options. With that vision in mind, tastytrade's affiliate, tastyworks, was launched in 2017 with Scott Sheridan at the helm as CEO. Tom continues to drive innovation and supply know-how to investors of all levels as co-host of tastytrade LIVE! with his life-long chum, Tony The Bat Battista.
