Irish America magazine will celebrate its 20th anniversary Irish America Wall Street 50 Awards Dinner on October 11th at the St. Regis Hotel in Manhattan. Tim Ryan, Senior Partner and U.S. Chairman of PwC, will deliver the keynote address at the event.

Ryan, who assumed his current role last July, has quickly become one of the most significant executives for his unparalleled opening of a dialogue at PwC and with more than 270 other CEOs around issues of race, diversity and inclusion across the business community. Over the past year, Ryan has worked a small group of peers to spearhead the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion, the largest CEO-led pledge to share resources across companies to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace and to cultivate an environment of openness and empowerment in the business community.

Honorees in attendance include Dan Keegan, Head of Equities NA, Citibank; Bill Mulrow, Senior Managing Director, Blackstone Group; Tara McCabe, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer, Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management; Michael Cleary, Co-President & Head of Consumer & Business Banking, Santander Bank N.A., Santander Bank North America; Hollie Fagan, Managing Director, BlackRock; Patrick Dwyer, Managing Director and International Private Wealth Advisor, Merrill Lynch Private Wealth Management, Dwyer & Associates; Barbara Koster, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Prudential Financial; and Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO, Ryan.

See below for the complete 2017 list of the Irish America Wall Street 50.

Since 1997, the annual Wall Street 50 has recognized the top Irish and Irish American financial leaders in the U.S. and the dinner has come to be the premier networking event for those financiers who share a passion for their Irish heritage and acknowledgement of the influence their Irish antecedents have had in their personal and professional lives. The list annually includes people with a range of connections to Ireland, from immigrants who have found innovative success in the American banking industry to fifth-generation Irish Americans who still make yearly trips to the country of their ancestors.
