New York, N.Y. (Sept. 11, 2013) - Robert Andrew Wild, J.D., chairman and founding member of legal firm Garfunkel Wild PC, is the newest addition to New York Institute of Technology's board of trustees.

"Robert's legal expertise, his knowledge of the health care field and vast contacts in that industry, and his guidance regarding best business practices will be an exceptional addition to the board as NYIT continues to evolve as a model 21st-century global institution," said NYIT Board of Trustees Chairperson Linda Davila (B.S.

Wild's professional and personal accolades include being listed among the Best Lawyers in America since 1991 and New York Super Lawyers since 2007 as well as being named Man of the Year in 2002 by the United Cerebral Palsy of Nassau County and awarded the Regina A. Quick Humanitarian Award by the Arthritis Foundation's Long Island chapter in 2010.
