In a Better World
is the first of a series of conversations with Leonard Chaikind
who is currently the Chairman and CEO of IICC (Institutional
Investors Consulting Company), located in Houston, Texas.
Chaikind is a one of kind, having worked for Royal Dutch Shell
and the Shell Oil Company for 34 years.
intrigues me most is Mr. Chaikind's
current commitment to using his exceptional vision, skills and
strategic savvy to dedicate the full spectrum of IICC’s
diversified activities to “make the world a better place to
live.” Mr. Chaikind is driven by a deeply felt belief that peace
is possible, and a uniquely personal
to moving towards that goal as quickly as possible.
1985 to August 1991, Mr. Chaikind administered the 12 billion
dollar Shell savings and retirement programs where he was
responsible for the investment and administration of 4 major
funds. The Shell funds were recognized by the industry to be one
of the best.
Chaikind was also one of the key founders of the Committee on
Investment Employee Benefit Assets, the largest Corporate Pension
Fund Group in the world and served on advisory boards for both the
New York Stock Exchange Institutional Investors and the Commodity Futures Trading
