Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has named Hefren-Tillotson, Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Kim Tillotson Fleming, as a recipient of a 2015 Distinguished Daughters of Pennsylvania Award.
The mission of Distinguished Daughters of Pennsylvania is to honor outstanding women for extraordinary service and contributions to the Commonwealth.
Fleming has led Hefren-Tillotson, one of Western Pennsylvania’s largest investment advisory and financial planning firms, since 1996.
“Since 1949, the Distinguished Daughters of Pennsylvania has empowered, inspired, and engendered great pride through the remarkable accomplishments of its members across the Commonwealth and around the world,” said Michele M. Ridge, president of the organization. “Women leaders are honored from diverse backgrounds and, to date, almost 500 talented, dedicated, and influential women from every part of the state have been honored for the significant, positive impact their work and service have had in improving the quality of life for all Pennsylvanians.”
Ridge said that Distinguished Daughters annually celebrates each Daughter’s accomplishments which reflect the richness of Pennsylvania’s past and her promise for the future.
“Through their impressive lifetime achievements, the Daughters enhance the good name of the state that they treasure and call home,” she said.
In addition to being Chairman and CEO of Hefren-Tillotson, Fleming serves on the boards of Allegheny College, Allegheny Conference on Community Development, The Buhl Foundation, Dollar Bank, EQT GP Holdings, The Pittsburgh Foundation, and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA). In 2013, Fleming was named Chairperson of the United Way of Allegheny County’s annual development campaign and co-chaired the United Way’s Women Leadership Council in 2007 and 2008. In 2004 and 2011, she was named an Athena Award finalist and received the 2005 YWCA “A Tribute to Women Leadership” award for business.
