Stacy Brandom, chief financial officer and executive vice president of Trinity Wall Street will deliver a lecture on “Ethics and Principled Decision-Making” as part of William Jewell College’s Everett P. Truex Economic and Financial Forum at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Yates-Gill College Union 221-222. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Located in New York City, Trinity Wall Street is an Episcopal parish located on Broadway at the head of Wall Street. With a 1000-member congregation, it stands as a symbol of spiritual values in the heart of downtown’s booming financial district and residential community. As a result of Queen Anne’s land grant in 1705, Trinity Real Estate owns and operates over six million square feet of commercial space in lower Manhattan. The revenue from this real estate makes much of the parish’s ministry work—including the operation of a subsidized apartment for elderly and disabled residents, an award-winning preschool, a “Brown Bag Lunch” program that serves the needy and a world-class music program—possible.
Brandom oversees Trinity’s treasury and finance departments, investment portfolio, technology, Trinity Cemetery, Trinity Conference Center, human resources and historic churches. As a member of the parish’s senior executive team, she works with Trinity’s vestry, clergy and lay staff to guide the strategies and decision-making for the church in support of its commitment to “a world of good.” A Liberty, Mo., native, Brandom has held similar positions with JPMorgan Chase and Citi Smith Barney.
The Everett P. Truex Economic and Financial Forum brings nationally recognized economists to William Jewell College each year, with funding for the endowed forum provided by the Everett Truex Trust. The late Dr. Truex, a faithful Jewell supporter and 1942 alumnus, later returned to the College as an economics and statistics professor.
