Rudolph W. Giuliani, chair of the firm’s Cybersecurity, Privacy and Crisis Management Practice and former New York City Mayor, will provide the keynote address during the ceremony to honor the award winners, which will be held in New York City on Sept. 22.

Kurzweil is a long time member of the CFA.

In addition to his work with Greenberg Traurig, Giuliani is the founder of Giuliani Partners, a leading professional services firm in emergency preparedness, public safety, leadership during crises, and financial management. He gained notoriety during his two terms as Mayor of New York City from 1994 through 2001. Prior to becoming Mayor, Giuliani served as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1983 through 1989, where he led the effort to jail drug dealers, fight organized crime, break the web of corruption in government, and prosecute white collar criminals. During his high-profile prosecutorial career, he secured 4,152 convictions with only 25 reversals.
