Victor started his career as a back office specialist in 1979 for Paine Webber and then Macro where he managed the entire back office. Victor wanted to go from a cost center to a profit center so he joined Rudolf Wolf as an order desk clerk quickly becoming the order desk supervisor and in late 1986 joined Gruntal as the order desk Manager. Victor was promoted to AVP and then to Vice President of Operations to becoming the Managing Director of the FCM. In 2002 Gruntal was sold to Ryan Beck, a broker dealer not in the futures business. He became a Broker with Refco taking all the futures business with him. Victor helped guide Ryan Beck to become an IB as well as write their Futures manual. Refco became MF Global and in 2010 joined AFS as the first Senior account executive in their New York office.

Victor's clients range from institutional to retail and his strong support and back office skills have helped him to assist other AFS brokers grow their managed account and Broker dealer business.
