S. Alexander Haverstick II, this year’s recipient of the Ackerman Corporate Award, began his career as a Trusts & Estates attorney and later worked in financial services on Wall Street. He was, successively, a Managing Director at Kidder Peabody, Prudential Securities, Lehman Brothers and Deutsche Bank, and served as President of Morgan Stanley Trust Company.

Mr. Haverstick founded Boxwood Wealth Management in 2007 and refocused the company as Boxwood Strategic Advisors LLC in 2008. Mr. Haverstick’s approach to business encompasses the idea that individuals’ financial decisions are not made independent of family dynamics.

His ability to "think outside the box" gives him great insight into the communication and relationship issues Ackerman sees in families everywhere. Mr. Haverstick has extended himself to the Institute in countless ways, becoming a great and valued friend to Ackerman.
