On June 10th , over 150 LGBT professionals gathered at the Morgan Stanley’s Times Square headquarters to join OPEN Finance’s premier Pride month event, An Evening with Trevor Burgess.  Mr. Burgess made history in August 2014 by becoming the first openly gay Chief Executive Officer of a publicly listed bank, C1 Financial.

Interviewed by Jill Schlesinger, the Emmy-nominated Business Analyst for CBS News, Mr. Burgess discussed his journey from Dartmouth as the president of the LGBT society and a member of a fraternity and his early professional life as an consultant at the Monitor Group and an investment banker at Morgan Stanley.  Mr. Burgess’ entrepreneurial shift to the corporate world came as historic LGBT progress was being made across the country — progress he was able to share with his husband, Gary, and daughter, Logan.
