Timothy J. Cochrane, the son of a New York City Police Officer and one of eight children growing up in the Cochrane residence, grew up in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn. Following the lead of his father to put his family and his country first, Tim joined the United States Marine Corp. (USMC), serving honorably from 1981 to 1985. Thirteen of those months were spent attached to mine fields in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Upon his honorable discharge from the USMC, Tim returned to Brooklyn, settling in Bay Ridge and working as a floor technician on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). In 1992, Tim became an independent floor broker, owning his own seat on the Exchange. This upstart firm handled small option layoff executions and grew to include large institutional accounts and regional research firms. When he retired from the NYSE in 2007, after 22 distinguished years on the floor, he was responsible for managing 7 seats for his full service brokerage firm, Prime Executions, Inc. Tim's success in the finance world is directly related to one important value his parents taught him and a value that he lived out in the USMC: Honor. Tim's word is his bond and he truly believes that honor is the most important quality a businessman should possess.
