August 27 , 2013
Muriel "Mickie" Siebert who was the first person to grab a seat in the New York Stock exchange died at 80 due to cancer. Director of Siebert Financial, Jane Macon confirmed her death and said she was "a fabulous woman, a trailblazer, and a pioneer."
Siebert had moved to the City when she was 22 and started off earning $65 per week. She struggled with those who didn't want her to join the New York Stock Exchange, grabbing herself a seat in 1967.
She later established her investment firm and was established by the state's first female banking superintendent.
Siebert Financial's chief operating officer said "Mickie was a pioneer and recognized as a leader throughout the financial services industry and beyond."
Siebert who resided in the New York City never married or had children.
