"Bill is an entrepreneur in the truest sense of the word," said Lance Albright, current IFNY president. "In addition to his innovative work in the New York insurance market during the last 30 years, including recently founding a national property and casualty company focused on the risk financing needs of schools, government and non-profit institutions, he has made significant contributions to our community and beyond through his efforts with the Diabetes Research Institute and the Future Leadership Foundation, a charitable organization he founded with his wife Joan."
Previous recipients of the IFNY Free Enterprise Award include Martin J. Sullivan, Frank J. Coyne, Maurice "Hank" R. Greenberg, Sanford J. Weill, and Donald Trump. Following the award presentation, the featured speaker will be David A. Sampson, president and CEO of the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI).

In 2008, Mr. Fishlinger teamed with Aquiline Capital Partners LLC to form WRM America. Mr. Fishlinger is a graduate of St. John's University School of Law and the University of Maryland.
