Wanted Time With Family
Steven Glick was one of 11 graduates of Harvard Business School who all somehow ended up in Greenwich, Conn., and found their way to each other's dining tables once a month. But Mr. Glick sometimes missed the group's dinners because of work that took him overseas for weeks at a time. "Every once in a while, it feels like he's just in Tokyo," said Tom Stark, a friend and dinner buddy by way of marriage to one of the Harvard graduates, describing his emotions since the attack.
Earlier this year, Mr. Glick, 42, took a new job to avoid the extended travel and be able to spend more time with his wife, Mari, a Broadway theater producer; his son, Colin, 6; and his daughter, Courtney, 4. He was at a financial technology seminar at the World Trade Center in his new position as managing director with Credit Suisse First Boston when the planes hit.
At Greenwich Associates, the financial consulting firm where Mr. Glick worked for 10 years before joining Credit Suisse First Boston, former colleagues remembered him as driven, straightforward, not afraid to speak his mind. But among the couples who formed his dinner group, Mr. Glick was mostly viewed as kind, cheerful and loyal. "He didn't need to be the center of attention," Mr. Stark said. The dinners, he added, will go on.
