GCW Capital Group today announced that Company Principal, Tom Waring, has been elected to the leadership position of Board Chair for Trocaire College.
The election took place at a special meeting, held on March 27, 2019, where a slate of new board members was elected and will be in effect through the college’s annual business meeting in 2020. According to Trocaire President, Bassam M. Deeb, the elections occurred due to a Trustee vacancy.
“We are sincerely grateful to Tom for his willingness to serve as our new Board Chair and to all members of our leadership group who have stepped up to fill board positions,” Deeb said. “Together, these outstanding WNY Citizens will help Trocaire continue to find new ways to provide the community with meaningful and cutting-edge educational opportunities, such as our new programs in Cybersecurity and Data Analytics. They will also, undoubtedly, help accelerate the college’s ability to make needed critical strategic decisions over the next several years.”
Mr. Waring holds a master’s degree in financial services and is a certified business specialist. He has 38-years’ experience in the financial services business, initially as the head of Waring Financial Group and, since 2014, as a Principal with Shawn Glogowski at GCW Capital Group. He is also the CEO of Family & Business Directions, LLC, a company aimed at helping business owners successfully navigate family wealth transitions. In acknowledging his election as Trocaire Board Chair, Mr. Waring noted his career of community service.
“Throughout my business career, I have considered it a professional requirement to give of my time and talents to community organizations and projects,” Mr. Waring said. “I was honored to be invited to serve as a Trocaire board member in 2016 and look forward to extending my service to the college over the next two years in the role of their board chairperson.”
