All along the East Coast, businessman Sam Oshana has cultivated a career in the financial world. Following an upbringing in Boston, Massachusetts, he relocated to New York City and its New York University for studies at the Stern School of Business. Afterward, he worked with both JP Morgan and Heartland Securities before starting his own merchant processing company based out of Miami Beach, Florida. Apex Payment Systems operated under First Data and Sam Oshana later sold this business. However, he continued work in this southern state, including investments in commercial and residential real estate -- both in New York and Florida -- and restoration and sale of properties in two Florida counties. He also invested in small startup companies. Today, he loans capital financing to individuals and small businesses while remaining in Miami Beach.
