Ken arrived on the grain floor of the Chicago Board of Trade in late 1995, working as a runner for LFG L.L.C. It was while working in this capacity that Ken first met Andy Daniels, then serving as LFG’s Executive Vice President of Sales. Recognizing his potential, Andy took Ken under his wing and they have been working together since.
Ken’s arrival coincided with Andy Daniels establishing the Daniels Trading division of LFG, L.L.C. Ken worked within the Daniels Trading infrastructure from the firm’s infancy, starting in a support role and working his way through the ranks. As the firm grew, so too did Ken’s presence within it. In April of 1996, Ken was given the opportunity to learn futures brokerage by assisting Andy Daniels and the firm’s other top brokers. In 1997, Ken became a broker, plying the skills he had learned so meticulously by watching the best in the dt office. In 1999, Ken became Sales Manager for Daniels Trading; in 2002, he was promoted to Senior Vice President of Sales; and in 2006, he became the firm’s Chief Sales & Marketing Officer.
