Franklin Pierce University is pleased to announce the appointment of Alfred Zucaro, Jr. to its Board of Trustees, the governing body of the institution.

Zucaro is one of south Florida’s leading voices on international trade and commerce, and has practiced immigration and nationality law in Boca Raton and Palm Beach County since 1986.

Founder of the World Trade Center Palm Beach in 1999, Zucaro was named one of the most influential people in International Trade and Commerce by South Florida CEO magazine two years in a row. From March 1997 through November 2002, Mr. Zucaro served on the West Palm Beach City Commission, during which time he helped establish Palm Beach County as an international business destination.

Zucaro is also a frequent speaker throughout Boca Raton and South Florida on the topics of international trade, immigration law and business development opportunities.

In 2015, Zucaro’s wife, Yvonne Boice, was bestowed an Honorary Doctorate from Franklin Pierce during the University’s 50th Commencement Ceremony in recognition of her significant and ongoing commitment to, and support for, the performing arts. 

In welcoming Zucaro to the Board of Trustees, Chairman Steven Camerino noted Zucaro’s long commitment to charitable and community organizations and his experience in the business community, particularly international trade and relations.  

“Alfred and his family’s commitment to non-profit organizations and their importance to the fabric of our communities is evident through the many groups and individuals they have touched. We are excited to have someone with Alfred’s business experience and international perspective join the board, and we look forward to his contributions as the University works to prepare students of all backgrounds to enter an increasingly complex world,” Camerino said.

The Board of Trustees meets at least three times a year, either in Rindge, NH, Manchester, NH, or Goodyear, AZ; most recently at the College at Rindge on October 21, 2016.
