A Munsey Park resident and Wall Street executive was recently named to the board of directors of Tuesday’s Children to help the nonprofit organization with fundraising and financial goals.
Dan Baumbach has nearly 20 years of experience trading in domestic and international markets and currently works for Jump Trading LLC as a quantitative trader.
“Dan has been a great asset to Tuesday’s Children and we are pleased he will now have a formal role within the organization,” said Terry Sears, executive director of Tuesday’s Children. “Dan is passionate about our mission of providing programs and support to individuals, families and communities that have suffered tragic loss and we are eager to further involve him as a member of our board.”
Baumbach lives in Munsey Park with his wife, Karen, and their three children. An Eagle Scout himself, Baumbach is an active leader in the Boy Scouts of America and also coaches girls soccer.
“Tuesday’s Children provides long-term support for those who need help moving on with their lives, and I cannot think of a better cause with which to be involved,” Baumbach said. “As all of us navigate the tragedies that are a part of today’s reality, we must take care of the families, people and communities that have fallen victim to these acts of terror.”
Baumbach earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Dayton in Ohio and a master’s degree in computer science from New York University.
Tuesday’s Children was founded after Sept. 11, 2001, to help those affected by the terror attacks and has since expanded to become the leading nonprofit providing long-term support to communities, families and individuals internationally who are affected by terrorism or the loss of a family member in the military.
The organization’s annual Tuesday’s Children Benefit on Tuesday at Plandome Country Club will honor Matthew Bitter, a Manhasset native who was deployed in Afghanistan, East Africa and Europe before finishing his final tour as a Navy SEAL in August 2017, and Doug Kechijian, a pararescue trooper in the U.S. Air Force who was named Noncommissioned Officer of the Year by the Air Force in 2015.
