Mike Ceo, an Institution at Traders Magazine

By

An era ended at Traders Magazine with the death of a former advertising executive, a gentleman who started as a space salesman in 1967 at Investment Dealers' Digest when it ran a photo section on traders' conferences and events.

Mike Ceo was a publisher emeritus of Traders Magazine. Ceo, who was often accompanied to conferences by his wife Lillian, brought his camera along to photograph traders.

It was the early foundation of Traders Magazine, years before it was spun off. In the 1960s, Ceo was working for the Journal American. He then joined Investment Dealers Digest. He rose through the ranks to become advertising director of IDD. A later IDD ownership decided to run the photo section in a new publication called Securities Traders Magazine, which Ceo joined. (Traders Magazine, which was formed in 1987 by the previous owners of Securities Traders Magazine, was sold to Thomson Corp. in 1993.)

Ceo will be sorely missed.
