Supervisor of Finance, Accounting and Administration
Philip Morris Aviation & Travel Services Department

When Tony enrolled at Mercy, it was his hope to graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting. In 1987, he did just that, but didn't leave Mercy with just a diploma. He met and married his wife Pam ('83 Mercy aluma) and they've been together ever since. Both active members of the Student Government of the Yorktown campus, it seemed destined that they should meet and that their relationship would endure many years after graduation.

Of his time at Mercy, Tony remembers “the professors, advisors, and administration with much affection.” Active not only in the Student Government, Tony was the editor-in-chief of the Yorktown Campus Chronicle. 

Tony has taken the valuable lessons he learned at Mercy and has gone on to work for Philip Morris as the Supervisor of Finance, Accounting, and Administration. After the events of September 11, Tony secured a donation of computers and software from his employer that the Red Cross was able to use to track and manage the influx of searches for the missing and inquiries about the victims of the World Trade Center attack. In addition, he helped coordinate and transport food donations to Ground Zero throughout September and October, taking a leave of absence from his career to fully dedicate himself to the relief efforts.

In addition to his actions in response to September 11, Tony remains a deeply committed Red Cross disaster services volunteer on an on-going basis. He provides assistance to individual families suffering through catastrophic property loss. His compassion drives him to help with everything from actually driving family members to hotels or motels for temporary relocation to arranging transportation services for children for school. Often, Tony and his wife have been known to generously give of themselves, collecting and donating clothing or food to victims.

Classmate and friend Norine Di Giulio sums it up well by describing Tony as a "giver from the heart.” “Tony epitomizes the professional and personal success of a Mercy graduate." 

Tony and his wife Pam currently reside in Northern Westchester, New York, with their cat J.D.
