Barbara S. Dixon
Ms. Dixon began her career on Wall Street in 1970 at a firm called Hayden Stone, which later morphed into Shearson Lehman Brothers where she became a Managing Director. Her expertise is in futures trading, as a money manager (CTA). She managed several commodity funds, lectured about the futures markets throughout the US, in London, and in Tokyo, and wrote a weekly market letter for Shearson Lehman clients. Mrs. Dixon left Lehman in 1992, and after a brief period at Smith Barney, she left Wall Street. Mrs. Dixon has served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Futures Trading Advisors, the Board of Directors of the New York Futures Exchange, the Board of Directors of FINEX and a trustee of the Futures Industry Institute. A graduate of Vassar College and a history major, Mrs. Dixon considered a career in urban planning before she became drawn to trading. Since leaving Wall Street she has become a Vice Chairman of New Yorkers for Parks, an advocacy/research organization that promotes the import of well maintained, well programmed parks for New York City. Mrs. Dixon lives in Manhattan and Stonington, Connecticut, on a 260 acre farm called Manatuck.
