2020 Thirty Under 30: Andrew Sy

Andrew is a distinguished young professional with a philanthropic attitude. He went to the University of Arizona and fittingly, served the Beta Theta chapter as Philanthropy Chairman and treasurer. He currently works at BNY Mellon’s Lockwood Advisors as a Senior Associate and is the youngest member of the ten-person investment team that manages $8.6 billion. Outside of his successful career, he has been a dedicated volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters the last four years. He has been a “big brother” for four years to Zarrien while also serving on the Advisory Board for his local chapter of Big Brother Big Sister. His passion for giving back goes beyond Big Brother Big Sister, he also is a board member for the Spruce Foundation and the Vetri Community Partnership, and he even serves as the president of the Lower Merion High School Lacrosse Boosters. Personally, he is most proud of helping his youngest brother raise money for the American Cancer Society in honor of their mother who passed away from her fight with ovarian cancer. Together, he and his brother were able to raise over $4,500 in 20 days. He fully believes that his experience in Pi Kappa Phi instilled the values of service as a key pillar in his life and having the opportunity to take on a leadership role within the fraternity so early on was monumental in providing confidence and leadership skills that he would not have had otherwise.
