Tina Bolton Endowed Scholarship

I always say that the career I had as an actor and performer prepared me for the one I had in finance. My wife, Tina, a former Broadway dancer, and I are happy to be able to provide financial support to dance majors at Adelphi. The experiences these students have at the University will prepare them well for their lives and careers.” -Jeffrey Bolton ’61

Jeffrey Bolton ’61, who received a Bachelor of Arts in English from Adelphi and pursued his graduate studies at New York University, has recently retired as a managing director of the investment management firm Neuberger Berman, where he founded the Bolton Group, which currently manages about $6 billion for individual and institutional clients.

Mr. Bolton began his investment career at Merrill Lynch in 1964, spent nine years at Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., and was a partner at Furman Selz and Hambrecht & Quist Capital Management LLC before joining Neuberger Berman in 1987, becoming a partner there in 1995.

He also had a successful performing arts career, which included stints as the production dancer at the Copacabana and a role in the original Broadway production of Gypsy with Ethel Merman. In 1995, he became a trustee for the Actors Fund and currently serves on the executive committee as the chair of fundraising.

At Adelphi, Mr. Bolton established the Tina Bolton Endowed Scholarship to benefit undergraduate dance majors. The first scholarship was awarded in 2011.

 A member of the Adelphi University Board of Trustees, he and his wife, Tina, were the recipients of the 2012 Outstanding Service to Adelphi Award at the 12th annual President’s Gala.
