Introducing TBA’s Newest Directors
Rebekah Flig has long been involved with community matters in the Murray Hill area—she is the Treasurer of the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association, and a Co-Chair of the Young Professionals Networking Group. Educated at New York University and The George Washington University, she specializes in capital markets business development in the mortgage finance industry, where she is currently a SVP at SWBC Lending Solutions. As a new Director on the Turtle Bay Association, she immediately joined the Communications Committee, and is leading the way in developing TBA’s social media networking. She is also working to expand the organization with professional networking events. Her expertise brings a new perspective to TBA.
Judy L Randall recently moved to Turtle Bay from Staten Island where she was a reporter for the Staten Island Advance, and worked with various civic organizations. Educated at Adelphi University in Political Studies, and New York University in Journalism, she has already written articles on community issues for the Turtle Bay Newsletter. In her role as a new Director on the Turtle Bay Board, she is already working with the Land Use Committee; reporting on local development issues, and acting as the Association’s liaison to Community Board No. 6’s Land Use Committee.
She is also a member TBA Special Events Committee.
Richard Sheehan moved to the Beekman Place area of Turtle Bay from Malverne, NY, where he worked on projects for a number of community organizations; including as President of the Malverne Civic Association. Educated at Fordham University, he has worked extensively in banking, and is now Vice President at New York Community Bank. As it happened, Richard came on board as a relatively new TBA Director, just as our previous Treasurer, Dick Irwin, retired; and we are happy to say that he was handily elected Treasurer in our November TBA Annual Meeting. Congratulations to Rich Sheehan.
