DENVER, CO — Jeffrey J.

More than 800 event attendees, who included the most influential leaders from New York’s financial industries, helped raise more than $638,000 for National Jewish Health, the leading respiratory hospital in the nation.


“I am proud that the asset-based lending and financial services industries have supported National Jewish Health for 38 years strong. My wife and I were so impressed by the team of doctors and professionals who we met at National Jewish Health,” McLane said “It’s an honor to support this great organization and to be inspired by its mission and values of helping other people.”

McLane received the National Jewish Health Humanitarian Award, which recognizes individuals who have made significant civic and charitable contributions and are leaders in their communities and industry.

McLane has been with Bank of America and its predecessor institutions for 18 years. McLane holds Series 7, 24 and 63 securities licenses. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Babson College, where he remains involved.

Dinner Chair Joseph Powers, senior vice president/marketing manager at Bank of America Business Capital, noted the “tremendous turnout from New York, Atlanta, Boston, California, Charlotte, Chicago, Texas, Canada and the U.K.” .

The leadership of the Financial Industries Dinner reflects New York’s legacy of broad support for the Denver-based institution. In addition to Powers, event leaders included Honorary Chair and last year’s honoree William D. Brewer, Winston & Strawn LLP, and National Jewish Health Trustees Robert Arth, Philip Bleser, Barry Kastner, William Kosis, Brian MacConnell, Lawrence Marsiello, Warren Mino, Joseph Nemia, Joseph Pollicino, Jr., Steven Seif, Harry Steinmetz, Andrew Tananbaum, Carl Toriello, Terrence Ullrich and newly inducted Trustee Craig Stillwagon.

Over the institution’s 116 years, National Jewish Health has enjoyed a strong relationship with thousands of patients and supporters in the Tri-State Area. In January, National Jewish Health and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai opened The Mount Sinai-National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute in New York. The Institute provides care for patients with respiratory and related diseases, and conducts research and teaching programs.
