NEW YORK (December 6, 2018)—Pace University’s Board of Trustees announced the appointment of its newest member, Robert S. Tucker, Esq., a 1996 graduate of the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace, effective immediately. He is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of T&M Protection Resources, a global security and investigations company based in New York City with operations worldwide.

A devoted philanthropist, Tucker is active with many organizations including the FDNY Foundation, The New York City Police Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City and The Richard Tucker Music Foundation, named after his grandfather, a well-known American operatic tenor.

“Robert Tucker is a respected community leader, a generous philanthropist, and a great friend to Pace University,” said Marvin Krislov, Pace’s president. “But more than that, he demonstrates the deep commitment to the public good that we aim to instill in our graduates. We’re proud that he is an alumnus of the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, and we’re even prouder that he’s joining our board of trustees.”

“Robert is a valued member of the Board of Visitors at Pace’s Elisabeth Haub School of Law,” said Mark Besca, chair of Pace’s board. “We are grateful for his continued leadership at the law school and know his expertise and service on the Pace Board of Trustees will be invaluable for the University.”

Tucker serves as a Commissioner to the Westchester County Police Board, a role he was appointed to in January 2017. Through the years, he has received awards and accolades for his accomplishments in the security industry and his dedication to public service, humanitarian, and mentorship work. He is the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award from the Citizens Crimes Commission of New York City, the Eugene R. Fink Memorial Award by the Associated Licensed Detectives of New York State (ALDONYS), and this past April, Tucker received the Public Service Award from Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City.

Tucker is a 1996 graduate of the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace where he founded the Robert Tucker Prize for Prosecutorial Excellence last year. The award recognizes outstanding public service and excellence in prosecutorial practice. He holds a bachelor’s degree from George Washington University.
