Trading Chief's Ellis Island Award

Traders Magazine, June 2004

Staff Reports

Charles LaGanga, managing director of Direct Access Partners, has won a 2004 Ellis Island Medal of Honor award. Direct Access Partners, a member of the New York Stock Exchange, is an agency equity order execution and clearance firm. The Ellis Island Medal of Honor award was created in 1986 as a way of recognizing the ancestral groups whose struggle helped build this nation. LaGanga is a leader of numerous charities, including the Children's Advocacy Group and the Advisory Board for Hard of Hearing/Visually Impaired Children. He was given the award because of his "outstanding contributions to his own ethnic group and American society." About half of all Americans have family connections traced through Ellis Island. LaGanga's father, Nunzio, came to New York as an infant with his parents in 1910, aboard a steamer from Italy.
