The San Franciscans: Rob Murray

San Franciscan Rob Murray at the foot of the Crooked Street
Rob Murray is a ray of light. Rob, a broker, worked for the recently defunct City institution Sutro & Co. Founded in 1858 by brothers Adolph and Gustav Sutro, theirs was the first brokerage west of the Mississippi. In its day, Sutro & Co. financed the cable cars and IPOed PG&E. In 2002 the company was absorbed by RBC Dain Rauscher of Minneapolis.
