Jon Tuteur, VP Business Development & DoS Lead, Interviews with Epilepsy Foundation
Published on: February 17, 2017
Tsymmetry believes in giving back to our community. That’s why when Jon Tuteur, VP of Business Development & DoS Lead, shared his diagnosis of epilepsy, we knew how Tsymmetry could give back. Tsymmetry is proud to support the nation’s leading epilepsy non-profit, the Epilepsy Foundation, through our corporate giving program, Tsymmetry Cares. In 2017, Tsymmetry will contribute not only financially, but will also support the Foundation at community events like the National Epilepsy Walk.
“The firm’s involvement means so much to me,” Jon explains. “It is clearly a cause that I am passionate about and I’m extremely lucky the firm feels the same and supports the Foundation in such a generous, meaningful way. Philanthropy and corporate giving in my opinion is an essential component of successful companies. Yes, we are a business and cannot survive without making money, but it’s our responsibility to give back to those who are less fortunate, and in the case of the Foundation doing everything they can to find a cure for a horrible disease. I also believe by giving back we are better able to service our clients as it provides us with a different perspective on the world and the needs of others outside of our ‘regular’ experiences.”
The Epilepsy Foundation’s mission is: “To lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.”
