Moravian’s Accounting Club to Honor Two Alumni at Annual Awards Dinner

Woodrin Grossman ’66 and Tom Repasch ’72 to receive Pinnacle Award

Woodrin Grossman and Tom Repasch Bethlehem, Pa., March 29, 2006—The Moravian College Accounting Club will honor two distinguished alumni at their annual awards dinner on Sunday, April 2. Woodrin Grossman ’66 and Tom Repasch ’72 will be honored with the Pinnacle Award. Each year the Pinnacle Award is given to one or two Moravian College business or accounting alumni who have reached the peak of career success.

Grossman retired as a partner from PricewaterhouseCoopers in June 2005 after 37 years of service. He served 17 years as chairman of the Healthcare Practice, and in that capacity created the strategy that allowed the company successfully to market their services to a wide variety of other businesses. He also helped to develop the PricewaterhouseCoopers Healthcare Thought Leadership initiatives. Grossman presently is Senior Vice President of Strategy and Development for Odyssey HealthCare, Inc. of Dallas, Texas. Grossman earned a Bachelor of Science degree in economics at Moravian College, and a Master of Business Administration degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Repasch is a delegate to the United Nations, currently serving as Senior Advisor on UN Management and Reform at the United States Mission to the United Nations in New York, U. S. representative to the Fifth (budget) Committee of the General Assembly, and a member of the UN Joint Staff Pension Board. Before coming to the United Nations in 1996, he spent 24 years with the United States General Accounting Office. During stints in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and New York, he audited federal defense procurement, housing, and drug enforcement programs as well as the Panama Canal Commission’s financial statements. Repasch received the GAO’s Meritorious Service Award in 1993 for his efforts in managing evaluations of federal projects to aid the homeless. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in accounting from Moravian College.

During the awards ceremony, the Accounting Club will also thank Warren Hilton for his years of service at the Moravian College Career Center. Hilton recently left his post as director of career development in order to become associate dean of student development.

Dinner will begin at 5:00 p.m. in the Haupert Union Building Pavilion, located at the corner of Monocacy and Locust Streets in Bethlehem.
