Robert ("Bob") Keeley is senior vice president and director of institutional sales and business development at Chicago-based R.J. O'Brien, the oldest and largest independent futures commission merchant (FCM) in the United States. He was named to the position in January 2014 after holding similar positions at Phillip Futures and Newedge.
Keeley began his career in 1991 at Chicago Research and Trading (CRT), a proprietary trading firm that was acquired by NationsBank during his tenure. He spent five years there as a supervisor of middle-office trade support and as manager of trade support operations in energy and commodity markets. In 1996 he joined Northern Trust as VP of derivatives and securities operations.
In 2001, Keeley began a 10-year career at Newedge (formerly Fimat USA), where he served as senior vice president of institutional sales in the firm's institutional relationship management group and as first vice president in its institutional sales group. When Phillip Futures expanded into the U.S. and obtained memberships at the major exchanges, the firm hired Keeley to lead its sales and business development drive. After spending a year at Phillip, Keeley left the firm to join R.J. O'Brien as SVP of institutional sales.
