The Greater Atlantic City Chamber since the 1960s has annually
recognized the most dynamic
and influential individuals in the business community, and will do so again at a dinner Thursday.
This year's recipients of its annual John G. FitzPatrick and Redenia Gilliam-Mosee Community and Business Leadership awards will be Tim Glenn, president of Glenn Insurance, and Leo Schoffer,
managing partner of Schoffer Enterprises.
Glenn, a lifelong resident of Linwood and father of three,
supports educational programs and organizations such as the Linwood Education Foundation.
He is a member of the AtlantiCare Foundation and Greater Atlantic City Chamber boards, and volunteers for the Wetlands Institute.
Schoffer's early childhood was spent on his parents' poultry and egg farms in Atlantic County. He graduated from Rutgers University and Hofstra University Law School and built a real estate development career with his father, Sam.
He is a member of the Board of Overseers at Rutgers University and president of the Atlantic City High School Hall of Fame Association.
