The American Cancer Society honored Dave S. Hattem, Senior Executive
Director, General Counsel, AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company at the
54th Annual Gala of Hope held at Fox Hollow Country Club in Woodbury,
New York on September 22nd, 2016.
Hattem leads AXA’s law department, including compliance, government
relations and corporate secretary’s functions, helping the company
navigate the legal and regulatory environment to achieve its strategic
goals. Earlier in his career, Hattem served as a federal prosecutor in
Brooklyn, where he took great pride in his service to the community as
part of the United States Department of Justice.
"We’d like to share our congratulations with Dave on this achievement,
and are pleased to recognize him for receiving this prestigious honor
from the American Cancer Society,” said Mark Pearson, President and CEO
of AXA Financial.
Dollars raised from the gala help the American Cancer Society fund
cancer research, education and screening initiatives, the passage of
health and life-saving laws, as well as direct services for cancer
patients, caregivers and families—benefiting Long Islanders, as well as
countless others across the country and around the world.
"Our mission is simple,” said Beth Ann Tolentino of the American Cancer
Society. "We work to save lives and celebrate life, every single day.”
In honor of Hattem’s recognition, the AXA Foundation made a grant of
$25,000 to the American Cancer Society.
