Former MassMutual broker Keith Gill and Robinhood Markets CEO Vlad Tenev are set to testify Thursday before the House Financial Services Committee on the Reddit GameStop Squeeze.

The hearing’s focus is: “Game Stopped? Who Wins and Loses When Short Sellers, Social Media, and Retail Investors Collide.”

Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., announced the witness list late Friday. Others testifying are:

  • Kenneth C. Griffin, Chief Executive Officer, Citadel LLC
  • Gabriel Plotkin, Chief Executive Officer, Melvin Capital Management LP
  • Steve Huffman, Chief Executive Officer, Co-Founder, Reddit

William Galvin, Massachusetts’ top securities regulator, recently subpoenaed former MassMutual broker Gill to testify about the Reddit GameStop squeeze.

Gill, known as “Roaring Kitty” on YouTube, played a key role in the trading frenzy surrounding video game retailer GameStop and other stock the week of Jan. 25.

He is also set to testify on Feb. 26 before the Securities Division in Boston.
