Anthony R. Slimowicz, Esq. of Long Hill Township will be honored by Good Grief with its Community Star Award at its 8th annual gala, A Night Among Our Stars, on October 11, 2018.

For his demonstrable leadership, compassion, dedication, and true commitment to making his community a better place, Good Grief is pleased to present Mr. Slimowicz with this award. “Good Grief is delighted to honor Mr. Slimowicz at our annual gala. His commitment to furthering the organization’s mission ensures a brighter future for grieving kids throughout our community,” said Ellen Cook, Good Grief Board Member and gala Co-Chair.

Currently, Mr. Slimowicz serves as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Crum & Forster Insurance Company, a national property and casualty insurance company with more than $2.2 billion in annual gross revenue. He is a graduate of Quinnipiac University School of Law and is admitted to practice law in the State of New Jersey, the District of Columbia, and the United States Supreme Court. Upon earning his Juris Doctor, he held clerkships and internships with the Superior Court of New Jersey, the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, and the Connecticut State’s Attorney’s Office. Mr. Slimowicz received his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Seton Hall University in 1987, who recently honored him as its 2018 Most Distinguished Alumnus.

Commencing his professional career in public accounting, Mr. Slimowicz has since served in prominent leadership roles within an array of business segments, including as chief legal officer, chief operating officer, and vice president and director of global organizations.

During his career, Mr. Slimowicz has also accepted appointments to the incoming Transition Teams for both Governors Chris Christie and Phil Murphy in 2009 and 2017, respectively. Governor Christie also appointed Mr. Slimowicz to the New Jersey Institute of Technology University Board of Trustees in 2010, where he served as vice chair of the board, and to the New Jersey State Ethics Commission in 2017.

In addition to this recognition by Good Grief, Mr. Slimowicz has been honored on numerous occasions for his volunteer work and professional accomplishments. For example, he was honored by the Boy Scouts of America by being named its 2013 Outstanding Eagle Scout of the Year, and NJBIZ recognized him as a finalist for the 2013 General Counsel of the Year award (while nominating two of the companies he founded for the 2013 Emerging Business of the Year Award). In recognition of his support and commitment in the fight against substance use disorders, Mr. Slimowicz received the Freedom House Distinguished Citizen Award in 2016, and was appointed to the Board of Trustees for Clara Maas Medical Center (a part of the RWJBarnabas Health facility) later that same year. In 2017, he was one of the founding members of the newly formed alumnus group, Seton Hall Insurance Professionals (SHIP), and remains actively involved with the organization today.

“Mr. Slimowicz truly embodies the values of a Community Star recipient through his tireless volunteer work. We are so looking forward to bringing all of Good Grief’s stars together for A Night Among Our Stars. Together, we will ensure that no child ever has to grieve alone,” said Joe Primo, Good Grief CEO.
