Donor and Financial Services Executive

Carrick Pierce believes strongly in nuclear arms control, that there is no greater existential threat facing our world today. A former options trader who graduated from Georgetown University and also studied at Carnegie Mellon, Carrick has spent a career on Wall Street designing and developing derivatives trading platforms. He’s worked for hedge funds, banks, and exchanges and also served as CEO of a derivatives software firm. While Carrick continues with his day job, he is increasingly involved in helping to raise awareness of the nuclear threats we live under today.

I’m most excited to work on projects that… make measurable progress toward some goal.

I’m looking for partners that can help me with… with raising awareness of the increasing nuclear proliferation threats that plague our world now.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… solving business problems.

Innovations in my field I’m most excited to work on… are new derivative products.
