Since leaving the NFL Cecil has held positions as Vice President of Guggenheim Partners Global Wealth Management division, worked at Oppenheimer and Company Investments, and Ocean Tomo, an Intellectual Capital Merchant Banc.  Cecil’s interest in the markets and business entrepreneurship began in High School when his coach, then a trader, exposed him to the Mercantile Exchange in Chicago.  This continued at the University of Wisconsin-Madison interning at Merrill Lynch for 2 summers.  These experiences, as well as others in real estate investment, real estate finance, sales and marketing, has helped shape Cecil as a business leader and develop his speaking expertise and voice to professionals of all types.
