In his part memoir, part historical narrative, investment industry leader Robert E. Riley reveals his experience of climbing his way from the bottom rung at Putnam Investments—one of the largest investment firms in the country—to the top position of CEO. Relying mainly on his characteristic resolve and despite historic deep-seated prejudice against Irish Catholics in the Boston investment community, Piercing the Irish Ceiling portrays a man who is a striking example of success in the face of adversity. With wide-ranging appeal, Riley’s tale will inspire anyone from any background. His is the true story of how a man, armed only with unflappable determination, challenged the status quo—and won.
