San Miguel Academy of Newburgh is thrilled to welcome Nick Preddice to the Board of Trustees. As a partner with Affinity BST Advisors, Nick builds client relationships and connects people to meaningful paths to achieving their goals.
Nick started his financial services career more than twenty-five years ago, working for Connecticut Mutual, Prudential, and as Managing Director at The Mony Group, Inc. in New York City. In 2002, Nick decided to take his experience and build a different financial services business from the ground up with partner Gary Sancilio with a singular vision: “to make a difference in the lives of clients, employees, and the community.”
Nick is driven by his desire to create financial security for his family and others. He grew up in scarcity but also with parents who taught Nick the value of giving back. He has been a leader in philanthropy and supports numerous causes. It all started with a chance invitation to a fundraiser for Wildwood, a school for autistic children, which opened Nick’s eyes and heart to the needs of local non-profits. Today, Nick serves as chair of the Foundation for Access: Supports for Living and the Hudson Valley Economic Development Council (HVEDC), and he continues to support Wildwood School, The Robert W. Preddice Scholarship Fund at SUNY Oneonta, Rising Ground, The American Heart Association, San Miguel Academy of Newburgh, and the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan Counties.
