John O'Donnell came to Online Trading Academy in early 1998. As one of the first employees and pioneers in the education division, he helped transition the company from a floor based model to the largest global DMA franchisor trading/investing school currently operated today. Mr. O’Donnell is instrumental in Online Trading Academy’s extensive business development initiatives with strategic partners and industry leaders. As Director of Research, he delivers a combination of educational and corporate experience that has been instrumental in making Online Trading Academy one of the premier trading schools in the world. His extensive management and consulting experience has been a key ingredient in Online Trading Academy’s fast global growth and industry recognition and awards.

John is known for his focus and thoughts on issues such as historic boom/bust business cycles and the potential coming burst of the credit bubble in the "Globalization 3.0 Era." His background in both education and financial services gives him a unique ability to teach complex financial theories and trading skills to beginner investors and seasoned traders alike.

2012 marks his greatest accomplishment, in his opinion, becoming a two time grandparent of Brooklyn and Brady.
