2013 Matthew Wiederkehr Leadership Award - David Meyrowitz
Originally introduced to Matt’s Promise by Jason Selman, last year’s award recipient, David Meyrowitz started his involvement with Matt’s Promise after attending the 2012 Gala. The father of a daughter about Charley’s age, Dave was inspired to action by what he learned and saw that night. Of particular impact on him was the fact that Matt’s Promise has very low overhead with virtually all of the money raised being deployed on high impact initiatives. He quickly jumped onboard as a co-chair of the Matt’s Promise Junior Benefit Event Committee helping with several others, to organize a very successful fundraiser this past January, Cue Up for a Cure, that had over 200 people in attendance. Dave has become a strong advocate for Matt’s Promise and has introduced a number of new supporters and volunteers to the organization.
Dave has worked at Credit Suisse for the past 5 years where he is the Head of Business Development for Private Banking USA leading strategic initiatives for Credit Suisse’s wealth management business in the United States. Previously, Dave worked in the financial services industry with Citigroup, Raymond James Financial, and A.T. Kearney. Dave graduated the College of William and Mary (BBA) and The Kellogg School of Management – Northwestern University (MBA).
