Board of Directors



Neil joined the CitySquash Board in 2024, but his long-time Fordham University connection has allowed him to admire the mission for over two decades. He is a Managing Director at Bank of America in the Financial Institutions Group where he leads the Financial Sponsor & Asset / Wealth Management coverage efforts. Neil played wide receiver at Fordham in the Patriot League, but has only found a small amount of that requisite speed and footwork to be even remotely relevant to his yet-to-blossom squash game. For over a decade, Neil has combined his Wall Street experience with his strong development and mentoring skills to act as Special Advisor and Program Counsel to a select group of NCAA Division 1-A / 1-AA head coaches at several major US universities. He received his B.S. from Fordham University and his M.B.A from Columbia Business School.

After business school, Terence worked in finance before returning to CitySquash. Terence grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada, where he was a competitive racquetball player.
