Dec. 6, 2012 – Expanding its cadre of leaders dedicated to advancing sight-saving research, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has named Steven D. Alper, of Towaco, New Jersey, to its board of directors. A managing director at Barclays Wealth and Investment Management, Alper has been involved with the Foundation since 1997 and a national trustee of the organization since 2004.

He and his wife, Elyse, have served on committees for successful Foundation Visionary Awards Dinners in New York City and co-founded the New Jersey Taste for Sight and New Jersey Fantasy Hockey events. Also chair of the Foundation’s New York Metro Leadership Council and a member of the board’s development committee, Alper lends his business savvy and philanthropic drive to help the more than 10 million Americans affected by retinal diseases.    

“Steve Alper has provided significant support for the Foundation’s work in a variety of ways,” says Bill Schmidt, the Foundation’s CEO. “We’re proud to appoint him to our board of passionate leaders whose ongoing collaboration and direction fuels our sight-saving research progress.”
