The Remarkable Story of How Cantor Fitzgerald Recovered From the Twin Towers Attack
Of all the companies affected by the attacks of 11 September, none was as devastated as Cantor Fitzgerald, the financial services conglomerate, who lost 700 people. CEO Howard Lutnick survived only because he had taken his son to school that day. His brother and best friend were not so lucky.
This book tells the astonishing story of what happened to Lutnick and his firm, and how he was able to rebuild the company as a tribute to those who died. Astonishingly, some rival companies tried to put them out of business, while others nearly killed it with kindness, offering Cantor Fitzgerald work that there was no one left to do.
In the end, the company survived because all who worked there knew that it was the best way they could help their lost friends and colleagues.
