Melnik Award Nomination

2016 Melnik Award

Evelyn Meltzer currently serves as IWIRC’s Vice Director of Regional Programming and also chairs the IWIRC at the Shore regional conference.  Meltzer’s efforts with respect to IWIRC at the Shore, having just completed its fourth year, have been instrumental in opening the door to a broader discussion and focus on regional planning within IWIRC, thereby providing IWIRC members with additional opportunities for growth and expansion of their personal and professional networks.  “Meltzer’s tireless efforts in growing IWIRC at the Shore demonstrate that she is an exceptional leader, who thinks outside the box and can solve any problem. Her commitment to IWIRC is unparalleled, and I am beyond proud to have Meltzer as a mentor in the restructuring industry and as a friend,” stated Meltzer’s nominator. In addition, Meltzer is the past chair of the IWIRC Delaware Network and remains an active member of the Delaware board and an avid supporter of the Delaware Network.  Meltzer, a partner in Pepper Hamilton LLP’s Wilmington, Delaware office, focuses her practice on debtor and committee representation and has played a major role in many of the country’s most recognized chapter 11 bankruptcy cases.
