Wall Street 50 – 2008

Sean Kelleher/Wall Street Access

As managing director of Wall Street Access, the financial services organization founded by his father Denis Kelleher, Sean Kelleher has helped guide the firm through successful ventures in online brokerage, institutional research and trading and asset management. In 1992, Kelleher joined the firm as a clerk and now manages a team of more than 50 analysts, traders and salespeople. A graduate of Wagner College, Kelleher now serves on the college’s alumni board. He also serves as co-chairman of the Staten Island Film Festival and is the co-founder of the Gerry Red Wilson Foundation to support spinal meningitis research. Kelleher, who spent the summers of his youth in Ireland, working the bog, says the catalysts behind his love for Irish culture are his family and playing Gaelic Football in his father’s village in County Kerry. He lives on Staten Island, New York with his wife Wendy and their three children, Maggie, Jack and Denis.
