B&P Kicks Off the Season With First Icon Event

About the Event
The new season has begun for the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s Business and Professional (B &P) Division’s Lewis Katz Industry Icon Series with a successful (and packed!) morning event on October 28. An array of professionals and entrepreneurs gathered in Zinman Hall on the Federation campus. They enjoyed this opportunity for local professionals to grow their businesses, broaden their networks and do good in the world by helping others through our Federation.

There were many new as well as familiar faces at the event, which also saw the debut of new B&P Division Chairs Gregory Gefen and Tracy Kawa. This year’s Industry Icon Chairs are Lauren Cohen and Jeff Shavitz. The event also welcomed special guests U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch and his wife, Jill.

The presenting speaker for this first installment was pioneering businessman, Ron Gallatin. The former Managing Director of Lehman Brothers Inc., Mr. Gallatin was responsible for a series of financial innovations, most notably Zero Coupon Treasury Receipts, Money Market Preferred Stock (and the resulting Auction Rate Securities Market) and Targeted Stock.

The Lewis Katz Industry Icon Series connects a diverse group of professionals and entrepreneurs to help build business and the community.
