NBCS Sincerely Thanks our Lawyers Leading the Way Sponsors
8th Annual Lawyers Leading the Way Breakfast appeals to Newark’s Legal Leaders.
February 9, 2018
Over 150 professionals gathered in the Crystal Room of the Robert Treat Hotel to share their legal expertise, renew acquaintances and to learn more about the happenings in Newark. Corporate keynote speaker, Timothy Harris, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Prudential Financial, highlighted the 140 years of Prudential’s involvement with the city through good corporate citizenship and philanthropy topping
one billion dollars. He also remarked on the success of the Newark Boys Chorus School and the contributions they have made to the city as, “Newark’s Musical Ambassadors.” In addition, he commended the students for their commitment to education and reaching personal goals.
But it was sixth grade, student speaker, Adan Santos who stole the show with his pithy comments about lawyers and the future role they may play in his career. It was a great morning raising over $100,000 to support the school and its programs.
The event was co-chaired by Linda A. Willett, Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of NJ and Martin L. Borosko, Managing Partner, Becker, LLC, NBCS Board Chair.
The host committee included Jerome Kearns, Director of Regulatory Requirements, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey; and Kathleen Lewanski, Corporate Governance and Records Management, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey.
