Samuel Turvey is a longtime community activist and Board Member in the not-for-profit community. He recently retired from TIAA, where he served as a Managing Director in the firm’s legal department, but continues to provide consulting services to the financial services industry. Sam was a Founding Member of the East Village Parks Conservancy, a Founding Member and Producer of New York’s Charlie Parker Jazz Festival (from 1993 to 2002) and presently a Board Member of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and the John Noble Maritime Collection on Staten Island.
Parenthetically, advocacy came to Sam early. As a grammar school student during the 1960s, Sam participated in protests and rallies to save Staten Island’s Greenbelt, including High Rock, from expressways Robert Moses hoped to link to the newly opened Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. That effort proved to be successful.
Sam majored in Urban Studies at Fordham University and also graduated from Fordham Law School, where he served as an Associate Editor of the Law School’s Urban Law Journal.
Sam is a native of Staten Island and has lived and worked in each of New York City’s five boroughs. He also has commuted at one point or another from Westchester, Fairfield, Essex, Morris and Monmouth Counties
