Zarb Alumnus Tony Stupore (B.B.A. '81) Heads Deloitte Team Tallying Votes for Pro Football Hall of Fame 2010
For the past six years, Deloitte & Touche LLP has tallied the votes for selection into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Deloitte also serves as the auditor for the NFL as well as a half dozen individual teams.
The Hall’s 44-person Board of Selectors met — the day before Super Bowl XLIII — to elect the new class. The Board consists of one media representative from each pro football city, with two from New York (for each of NYC’s NFL teams). A 33rd member is a representative of the Pro Football Writers of America, and there are 11 at-large delegates.
Members of Deloitte’s NFL engagement team, along with some help from the local offices, began their day at 7:00am. The Board initially narrowed the field down to 15 finalists prior to Saturday. Deloitte representatives then tallied the votes after each round until the final inductees were selected. Shortly after the conclusion of the meeting, at a live, televised press conference, Deloitte Lead Client Service Partner Tony Stupore handed the envelope to the Hall’s president and executive director, Steve Perry, who revealed the newest enshrinees.
