TODD M. SCHOENBERGER – STOCK WATCH
Todd M. Schoenberger began his career in the financial services industry as a Registered Representative with Merrill Lynch & Co. where he specialized in helping individual investors achieve financial independence. After Merrill, Todd joined Legg Mason Wood Walker as an Institutional Trader where he was responsible for managing over US$140 million of cash for several publicly traded technology companies.

During Todd’s tenure with USAA, Consumer Reports recognized the firm as having the #1 brokerage services product in the entire financial services sector.
