Billy Assimos is a Chicago-based former trader and retired restaurant manager who was the manager at Ceres Cafe in the Chicago Board of Trade Building for 26 years. He was a member of the Chicago Board of Trade, trading primarily stock indexes.

Background[edit]

Assimos grew up in the restaurant world and the world of trading, following in his father's footsteps in both. He started out peeling potatoes in his father's restaurant, Orlando's, in the Chicago Loop, and later became partner in the business and then chef of the whole restaurant. Fellow restaurateurs Louis Bournakis and his son Peter, who started another restaurant called the Brokers' Inn, bought the Sign of the Trader from Jack Bolling in 1986 and renamed it Ceres Cafe, moving it into the CBOT Building. Billy Assimos eventually went to work for Bournakis.[1]

In 2016, Assimos was profiled by John Lothian News in an article by Sarah Rudolph. Assimos was given the moniker, "The Face of Ceres."

Education[edit]

Assimos graduated from Purdue University in Indiana.
