NIRI Names Four New Fellows

NIRI Fellows Recognition Program Honors Distinguished
Investor Relations Professionals 

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI) today announced its 2015 class of four new NIRI Fellows. NIRI Fellows are recognized leaders who represent the ideals of the investor relations (IR) profession.

The NIRI Fellows Recognition Program honors NIRI members who have distinguished themselves through their leadership within NIRI as well as the professional standards to which they have abided and their involvement and contributions to the IR profession throughout their careers. Those selected as “NIRI Fellows” are highly engaged individuals whose commitment has led to continued service as subject-matter experts and leaders in education, selection-committee participants, authors, and thought leaders within the Institute and the field of investor relations.

“I offer my congratulations to this well-deserving group that has earned the distinction of being named as NIRI Fellows,” said James M. Cudahy, President and Chief Executive Officer of NIRI. “These influential individuals join just 16 other investor relations professionals to receive this designation since the program’s inception in 2013. We look forward to honoring them at the NIRI 2015 Annual Conference in Chicago.”
