Milrose Consultants Rings the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange
On January 10th, the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) welcomed our portfolio company Milrose Consultants (“Milrose”), along with the NYC Department of Buildings and John Gallin & Son, Inc., to ring the opening bell. The momentous occasion to ring the opening bell was to celebrate the completion of The NYSE Podium Accessibility Project.
Milrose has been the trusted code advisor and filing representative to the New York Stock Exchange for the past 20 years. More recently, the NYSE asked Milrose to help find an accessibility solution to their podium, the location where the opening and closing bell is rung to signal the daily global trading session. The podium is the balcony that overlooks the trading floor, yet it was not accessible for disabled individuals. Despite the challenges of changing a historic building built in the early 1900s, Milrose created a compelling code compliant solution that met the spirit of the law under voluntary accessibility applicability. After extensive planning and coordination with the Department of Buildings, Milrose’s solution was accepted through the CCD-1 process.
The Milrose Family of Companies continues to be the tip of the spear in all things compliance and fulfillment through their dedication and expertise, and we are proud of their involvement in making the legendary NYSE now accessible to all.
Here is the video celebrating this important and monumental achievement:
