Stephen B. McCurdy
Steve is a founding director and life-long supporter of BSF’s mission. After more than 15 years on BSF’s Board, including 9 years as Chair, he continues to take on various responsibilities at BSF, including serving on BSF’s Fundraising Committee, BSF's Policies and Agreements Committee, and BSF’s Finance and Investments Committee.
Steve's wife, Kate, also a founding director, currently is Chair of the BSF Board. They are the parents of two wonderful children, Will, who unfortunately died as a consequence of Barth syndrome in 2014 at the age of 28, and Eliza. The McCurdys have made it their life’s mission to identify and develop treatments, and hopefully a cure, so that other affected families do not have to experience the grief and suffering associated with Barth syndrome.
Steve earned a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Harvard Business School. He retired in 2014 as a Senior Vice President after a 30-year career with American Express in New York. He continues to serve on philanthropic boards and resides in Boston, MA.
