The Edgemont Community Council award for distinguished community service has been awarded just about every year since 1950. The ECC’s Silver Bowl Committee this year recommended that we present this year’s Silver Bowl to Edgemont resident Anish Nanavaty for his years of service on the Edgemont School Board.
Anish served on the board between 2011 and 2017, and was its president during the 2016-17 school year. Duing his tenure, he led several key initiatives, including a $14 million bond issuance, the renegotiation of the teachers’ contract, and various other financial measures that allowed the district to reduce the volatility in its tax rate increases and enabled it to meet the New York State tax cap. Anish’s contribution to the school district has allowed the district to remain on a solid financial footing for now and, because of the strategies he has implemented, for the years to come.
Anish lives on Evandale Road with his wife Malhar and son Anubhav, a college student, and daughter Mehek, an eighth grader. He has a bachelor’s degree in science and engineering from the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania. Anish works as a financial consultant through his company Free Ion Advisors, LLC, where he leverages his experience in analytics and decision sciences, digital transformation, process reengineering, shared services and outsourcing. He currently serves on the board of Digital Divide Data, a non-profit that delivers digital services to corporate clients while employing and educating disadvantaged people in development countries and the United States. Please join us at the Annual Meeting on April 25 at 8 PM at the Greenville School Cafeteria to celebrate his distinguished service.
