Supporting the Cause: Thomson Reuters Joins Forces to Support the NLEOMF
By Dan DeSimone and Rob Russell, Thomson Reuters
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) was founded in 1984 and is dedicated to honoring and remembering the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers in the United States. Thomson Reuters Legal Division, and specifically its Fraud Prevention and Investigations Unit (FP&I), spearheaded the effort to bring together members of the business, government and civic communities to support the NLEOMF. The dinner event was hosted on June 13, 2012 by Washington, DC businessman, Franco Nuschese, at his flagship restaurant, Café Milano. The featured speaker was Clint Hill, Retired Secret Service Agent, who discussed his career protecting the Kennedy Presidential family and the tragic events of November 22, 1963.
Steve Rubley, Vice President and General Manager at Thomson Reuters, first met representatives of the NLEOMF in 2011. Steve, along with Tom Pfeifer, Global Head of Customer Sales, later attended a 2011 NLEOMF gala in Washington, D.C. Steve and the FP&I team worked together with the NLEOMF to make the June 13, 2012 event a reality.
Several Washington, D.C. luminaries attended the dinner in support of the NLEOMF. Among them were Frances Fragos Townsend, the former Homeland Security Advisor to United States President George W. Bush; John Pistole, the current Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration and former Deputy Director of the FBI; and Thomson Reuters’ own Rob Russell, a Sr. Director in the Federal Government Segment.
