Albert J. “Bud” Schiff, CLU®, will be inducted into The American College Alumni Hall of Fame in an award ceremony at The College’s Knowledge Summit in New York City on Monday, December 6, 2010. Only five other individuals have ever received this honor.
Schiff is the Chief Executive Officer of New York Life Executive Benefits LLC (NYLEX Benefits) as well as the retired Senior Executive Vice President and member of the Board of Trustees of the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York (MONY).
The Alumni Hall of Fame is intended to recognize graduates of The American College’s designation or degree programs who have made extraordinary contributions in time, effort and energy to this remarkable institution of higher learning. Individuals must be long-term volunteers and active participants in The College’s community and learning environment.
The selection of the Alumni Hall of Fame recipient is based on past nominations and new nominations from graduates. Being nominated previously does not exclude individuals from consideration.
“Time and again, Bud has demonstrated his steadfast support of The American College. As a member of our Board of Trustees and as the Chair of our Foundation Board of Directors, Bud has helped reinforce our core values and create growth opportunities. With his support, The College was able to obtain the vital financial resources needed to deliver technologically advanced, high-impact professional education. Today, our institution continues to grow and prosper thanks to his efforts,” stated Larry Barton, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of The American College.
Induction into The American College Alumni Hall of Fame is a significant achievement for Schiff in an already remarkable career marked by accomplishment and distinction.
