Kim Tillotson Fleming, chair and chief executive officer of Hefren-Tillotson, Inc., a privately held Pittsburgh-based investment firm, will visit Allegheny College as its executive in residence on October 30-31.
The Executive in Residence Program, sponsored by the college’s Center for Business and Economics, is designed to connect students and faculty with prominent business executives who spend several days on campus speaking about their life experiences in business, paths to success, and lessons learned.
“As a trustee at Allegheny College, my favorite times have been when we are interacting with the bright young student minds,” Fleming said. “I am honored to be the executive in residence this year and hope to share some words of wisdom that will be meaningful to the students as they prepare to make a difference in the world.
Fleming is a graduate of Northwestern University with a degree in economics and holds several professional designations. She is a chartered financial analyst charter holder, a graduate and former board member of the Securities Industry Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, and has completed the Center for Fiduciary Studies Certification program at the University of Pittsburgh.
She is a member of the Association for Investment Management and Research, Pittsburgh Society of Financial Analysts (former president), and the Financial Planning Association. In 2015, Fleming was named one of nine Distinguished Daughters of Pennsylvania, and in 2009, she was voted one of the “Top 25 Women in Business” by the Pittsburgh Business Times. In 2003, she was honored by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development as one of “Pennsylvania’s 50 Best Women in Business.”
Fleming has served as president of Hefren-Tillotson since 1996, and in December 2010, was elected chair and chief executive officer. The firm offers comprehensive financial planning and investment advisory services for individuals, foundations, trusts, and qualified retirement plans.
