Stevens Institute of Technology Awards Sean Hanlon Highest Honor for Professional Achievement and Service

Sean Hanlon, Founder, CEO and Co-Chief Investment Officer of innovative asset management firm Hanlon Investment Management, and ’80 alumnus of Stevens Institute of Technology, will be awarded Steven’s Honor Award, recognizing notable achievement in the field of investment and wealth management, and financial technology (fintech), at the annual Stevens Awards Gala at The Plaza Hotel New York on April 14, 2018.

The gala brings together alumni, friends and guests to celebrate Hanlon’s professional achievements and service to Stevens. At the historic Plaza Hotel, the Stevens community will gather in black tie to honor Hanlon and others.

“The 2018 Stevens Awards Gala recognizes ingenuity and innovation in our alumni, and I’m proud we’re honoring Sean Hanlon this year,” said Stevens President Nariman Farvardin. “As a loyal alumnus, dedicated trustee and generous donor, Sean has helped set the vision for Stevens’ future and positively impacted our university, staff and students,” Farvardin said.

Hanlon has led his company to be a leader in investment and wealth management, as well as fintech. At Stevens, he has served as a trustee since 2010, has been chair of the Investment Committee and currently chairs the Finance Committee. Through the Sean and Cathy Hanlon Foundation, he and his wife Cathy helped found and fund the Hanlon Financial Systems Center (HFSC), now an integral part of the Stevens Business School, which has two state-of-the-art finance and data labs.

“It’s been my passion to support education at Stevens and empower students with the resources needed to thrive on Wall Street,” said Hanlon. “My wife Cathy and I made gifts to build, and participated in the design of, the Hanlon Financial Systems Center and Laboratories. The center supports many aspects of Stevens’ quantitative finance, financial engineering, big data, investment management and cyber-security curricula and research,” Hanlon said.

The Center, led by Executive Director George Calhoun, Ph.D., a Stevens full-time faculty member, is a unique academic financial facility, integrating the latest hardware and software technologies, accessing real-time data, as well as historical time-series data, to support innovative research into the most common and urgent problems in contemporary finance. The labs emphasize data visualization technologies in finance and include trading desks that replicate real-world scenarios and inspire collaboration.
