The Founding Chapter of One Hundred Black Men (OHBM) has announced the installation of Mr. Aldrin K. Enis as its 11th president.

Mr. Enis, an 18-year member of the historic national organization, is the Northeast Region Outreach Director for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, where he has worked since September 2016.

"The ability to serve this esteemed organization at this level is an honor that I do not take lightly,” said Aldrin K. Enis. “I stand on the shoulders of the Founders, prior Presidents, and elder members who have taken on the responsibility to uplift our community.”

Founded in 1963 by civil rights and community leaders such as Judge Robert Mangum, baseball great Jackie Robinson, and the Honorable David N. Dinkins, 106th Mayor of the City of New York, OHBM has become the premier organization for successful Black men with a heart for service and the will to foster meaningful change. Over the years, OHBM has changed the life trajectory of hundreds of deserving young people.

"In 2005, I was awarded the OHBM scholarship, which was a valuable asset to assist with achieving my educational goals. The part that became most valuable was that Aldrin was assigned to me as a mentor,” said William Dennis, a former scholarship recipient. “Now, as a current member of the One Hundred, my goal is to instill the same passion in scholars, as Aldrin did for me. I have no doubts he will take the organization to new heights."

In addition to its highly successful scholarship program, OHBM has touched thousands of people through mentoring, hunger relief and civic engagement initiatives, including the founding of the first Eagle Academy for Young Men as well as feeding over 70,000 hungry New Yorkers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mr. Enis’ career has spanned the highest levels of business. Currently, he is the Northeast Region Outreach Director for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, where he oversees engaging and expanding the organization’s existing relationships with the African-American constituency. Previously, Aldrin worked at BNY Mellon as a Vice President in their Client Engagement and Business Development division. Mr. Enis also spent nearly ten years at State Street Bank and Trust and Morgan Stanley Investment Management in Senior Client Service Associate roles, where he worked with national and international institutional clients invested in real estate and growth products.

Not one to live off the legacy of others, President Enis plans to scale up OHBM's youth programs, bridge relations between Africa and its Diaspora, and heighten awareness around mental health. The significance of this role is not lost on him, and he looks forward to helping bring the organization to a new level.
