Before joining Financial Services Associates, he worked with Citigroup where he specialized in the analysis of sophisticated mutual funds and other investment products, and was an investment associate at J&W Seligman. Mr. Salzinger began his career with the Bureau of Labor Statistics at the US Department of Labor where he helped to generate the Producer Price Index, and then he moved on to KCI Communications. He earned a BA in economics with honors from the University of Chicago and an MBA with concentrations in finance and marketing from the Johnson Graduate School of Management of Cornell University.
