Edward (Ted) graduated from Villanova University with a degree in Criminal Justice and spent 20 years in law enforcement with the New York City Police Department, retiring as a Lieutenant Special Assignment. During his tenure at the NYPD he worked in patrol and at the Communications Division. He was one of the principle authors of the Public Safety Wireless Advisory Committee Report that defined the radio system needs for public safety for the next 25 years. He has chaired various Federal Communications Commission subcommittees as both a police lieutenant and a consultant.
Since his retirement he has consulted on radio and 911 systems for major public safety agencies including the New York Fire Department, the NYPD, the MTA/New York City Transit, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Ted’s experience managing large multi-million dollar programs helps NCAN with relationship management and logistics. His passion for supporting NET patients has led him to meet with senior management at the FDA and the American Cancer Society.
Ted supports NCAN’s fundraising activities, conferences, and events, and he has created the Uncork a Cure for Neuroendocrine Cancer fundraiser at a Long Island winery. His wife Regina, although not a NET patient, is a two-time survivor of cancer providing a unique perspective on cancer patients and their need for support.
