Boston Corporate Finance Community Announces 2019 Event Date & Honoree

Collaboration of leading corporate finance firms & advisors committed
to high impact, long term community support

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The
Boston Corporate Finance Community (BCFC)
, a collaboration of
Boston-based companies active in the corporate finance industry,
announced the date for the 2nd annual BCFC Gathers to Give Back
celebration on Thursday, October 10. At the event, the group will raise
funds on behalf of More
Than Words
and honor Bill
Mayer
, executive vice president and group head, Wells Fargo
Equipment Finance.

BCFC
is honoring Mayer for his commitment and passion to supporting the
community where he lives and works. Mayer worked closely with Vibrant
Boston
, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage
youth and families in education, enrichment and wellness, to provide a
safe out-of-school time environment for young people living in the Lenox
Camden Housing Developments in Roxbury, Mass. Bill also helped launch
and establish the Wells Fargo New England Partnering Board to support
organizations across New England that focus on education, job training,
and affordable housing.

“Bill embodies the spirit of a true community champion and he is
dedicated to helping others, whether through volunteering, providing
career advice to young professionals or establishing a scholarship for
students in need at his alma mater Penn State,” said Ward Mooney, BCFC
founding partner. “The
Boston Corporate Finance Community
looks forward to recognizing Bill
and directing support to More Than Words to continue their incredible
growth and impact.”

BCFC
was formally created in 2018 with the goal of establishing an annual and
unique celebration that would serve as a premiere networking event for
finance professionals in Boston and create a long-term partnership with
an outstanding nonprofit organization serving local youth. The founding
partners of BCFC
are made up of leaders from Crystal
Financial
, Riemer
& Braunstein LLP
, Gordon
Brothers
and Wells
Fargo
.

After a diligent and thorough search for a high impact, results driven
organization, the committee selected More
Than Words
as its nonprofit partner. More
Than Words
is a social enterprise that annually empowers 350 young
adults who are in the foster care system, court-involved, homeless, or
out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a $4
million bookselling business.

The inaugural year of BCFC
Gathers to Give Back
brought 300 guests together and raised more
than $325,000 from 45 companies across the Boston corporate finance
community.
