In the Community

Tim learned the importance of being civic-minded from his own father’s example and always hoped to be able to follow in his father’s footsteps in being able to give back to his community.  Before working with New York Life, Tim was disheartened in a career path that didn't allow him the time to be involved like he desired. He has been proud to work with a company of the stature of New York Life, which is so heavily involved in philanthropic efforts on a corporate level and, as you can see below, has taken advantage to give back generously.
