About CURE > Board
Thomas Hynes joined the CURE Board in September 2008. He is the head of Institutional Sales and New Product Development for Mesirow Financialís Investment Management department, where he manages a team of ten professionals responsible for distributing the firmís investment management capabilities. Prior to his current position, Hynes worked as an associate and vice president in Mesirow Financialís private equity investment division.
Hynesís passion for CUREís mission stems from the struggles that his best friend from high school, Philip Doran, has had to endure due to epilepsy. Phil contracted encephalitis at the age of 17, and has suffered from uncontrollable seizures ever since.
Hynes graduated cum laude from the University of Chicago Law School, received an MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg Graduate School of Management, and completed his BA with honors from the University of Notre Dame.
Hynes resides in Chicago with his wife Carol Jones and their three children, David, Benjamin, and Anna.
