About the PUW > Martin Tuchman, Chairman

Martin Tuchman is the Chief Executive Officer of the Tuchman Group, overseeing its holdings in real estate, banking and international shipping.

He became involved with Parkinson’s organizations after his wife Margaret, was diagnosed with the disease more than 25 years ago.  Frustration with the lack of effective treatments led him to identify closely with the Walk’s dedication to funding research.

He joined the Walk in 1997 and became Chairman in 2000.  In finding a cure, Martin believes strongly in collaboration between groups and individuals and utilization of joint funding from private and public levels.  Joint efforts will lead to increased quality of life for those with Parkinson’s disease and it is only by these joint efforts that we will come closer to finding a cure.
