Gregory Walter McCloskey (also known as Gregory Walter Meier) of Newport Beach California a stockbroker formerly registered with WestPark Capital Inc. has been terminated by the securities broker dealer on October 7, 2019 founded on accusations that McCloskey failed to comply with a heightened supervision plan that was implemented because of his misconduct in the securities industry.

FINRA Public Disclosure confirms that McCloskey has been fined and suspended from associating with any FINRA member in any capacity supported by allegations that he sold securities away from prior securities broker dealer employer, Newport Coast Securities Inc.
