Bartels earns honor at NESC annual gala

Each year, National Executive Service Corps (NESC) honors a business leader who shows exceptional commitment to nonprofits in the New York tri-state region. This year’s honoree is Kenneth G. Bartels, who deploys his vast experience in real estate investment and corporate finance to help strengthen the operation of nonprofit organizations, large and small.

His contributions will be highlighted at National Executive Service Corps’ 10th Annual Gala Dinner. The evening also will feature Mr. Bartels’ wife, comedian and Greenwich Post contributor, Jane Condon, who was voted Audience Favorite on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

The gala will take place tuesday, Oct. 28, at The Yale Club of New York City, 50 Vanderbilt Avenue, at 6 p.m.

“We are delighted to honor Ken Bartels as he epitomizes the essence of NESC,” said Marvin B. Berenblum, CEO of National Executive Service Corps. “He has made his mark in the business world and has actively given back his time and expertise to further strengthen the nonprofit community.”

Mr. Bartels serves on the board of directors for the Ithaca-based firm Vybion, which develops therapeutic drugs and antibody innovations. From 1993 to 2013, Bartels headed Paxton Properties Inc., which invested in center-city office buildings in the United States and Europe. He previously led Global Real Estate Equities for Citicorp, and held senior executive positions in real estate and investment banking at Morgan Stanley Realty Inc. and Morgan Stanley International Inc. His nonprofit endeavors include education, theater, youth services and religious institutions.

Mr. Bartels is vice chair of the Classic Stage Company in New York City and a charter trustee of the Round Hill Community Church in Greenwich. He formerly chaired the Sabre Foundation in Cambridge, Mass., which shipped almost $350-million worth of new books and other educational materials to more than 80 countries. He also is the former chair of Youth Service America, based in Washington, D.C., and World Learning in Brattleboro, Vt., which offers education, development and exchange programs.

Mr. Bartels maintains deep ties to his alma mater, Harvard University, where he has served as national chair of the Dean’s Leadership Council for the Graduate School of Education.
