CFA Society Stamford - History & Past Presidents
The Stamford Chapter was officially founded in May, 1995. Allen Lovejoy, CFA, (the primary co-founder) became its first President. The Chapter only had 15 members at that time. Since 1995, the Chapter has experienced substantial growth. Because of the large numbers of investment personnel located in Fairfield County, the Chapter became one of the fastest growing units of all the AIMR Societies. During this time, expanded opportunities were offered in the Education and Program areas.
Jeffrey Hall, CFA, became the 2nd President. He served from 1996-1998. During this time, the Chapter was on its way to becoming a Society. In 1998, the Chapter was renamed the Stamford Society of Investment Analysts and admitted into AIMR as a separate independent Society. Ralph Lim, CFA, became the first President of the new Society and the 3rd President of the Stamford unit. The chapter was renamed again in 2004 to Stamford CFA Society, and again in 2013 to CFA Society Stamford.
Today, CFA Society Stamford has a diverse professional membership and continues to grow rapidly.
The success of CFA Society Stamford is a lasting tribute to the vision of its co-founders; Allen Lovejoy, Jeffrey Hall and James Kitler.
