A New York-based wealth advisor, Keefe Gorman serves as a managing director of investments at the Merrill Lynch office in Ithaca. In his free time outside of Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman, who is also a certified ski instructor, enjoys hitting the slopes.
Although New York is perhaps best known for its urban centers, the state is also home to a variety of mountainous terrain that helps make it an excellent ski destination. While New York’s excellent skiing is no secret to locals, some outside of the state may be surprised to learn that New York features more ski areas than anywhere else in the country. Among its over 40 ski locales are several destination resorts, including Gore Mountain, Windham Mountain, and Whiteface Lake Placid.
Home to more skiable acres than any other New York resort, Gore Mountain offers 107 trails and 27 glades as well as excellent off-hill attractions. For something a little closer to New York City, many area skiers head to Windham Mountain. This Catskills resort boasts 269 skiable acres and prides itself on providing something for skiers of all ability levels.
With a name recognized worldwide, Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid is a premier resort with the highest vertical drop east of the Rockies. Those who visit the resort can easily see why it was chosen twice to host the Winter Olympics.
Keefe Gorman is the managing director for Merrill Lynch in Ithaca, New York. Before he started his nearly 30-year career that launched him to his management position at Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman was a Vilas Scholar at St Lawrence University, where he received a bachelor of arts in economics.
The Bodman Foundation of New York City founded the Vilas Scholarship in 1976 in honor of an accomplished Wall Street financier named Homer A. Vilas who graduated from St. Lawrence in 1913. Not only was Mr. Vilas a successful businessman, he was also a philanthropist to many charities, including his St. Lawrence University.
The scholarship is for $88,000 for four years of study, and it goes to students who wish to pursue a liberal arts degree as a preparation for a business career. However, they are not required to declare a major in business in the liberal arts. After graduation, Vilas Scholars are assisted further by introducing them to colleagues in the alumni network.
