Mr. Allen Fagin is Executive Vice President and chief professional officer of the OU.
Mr. Fagin is a graduate of Yeshivat Ramaz in New York City; Columbia College (1971); Harvard Law School and the JFK School of Government at Harvard, where he received a JD and a Masters Degree in Public Policy, both in 1975. He then served as a law clerk to the Hon. Robert L. Carter, United States District Judge in the Southern District of New York.
Allen Fagin practiced law at Proskauer Rose, LLP, one of the leading international law firms, beginning in 1976, where he specialized in employment law, co-chairing Proskauer’s Labor and Employment Law Department for many years. He served as Proskauer’s chairman from 2005-2011. During that time, the firm grew to over 750 lawyers and approximately 1,500 employees, and opened offices in London, Sao Paulo, Chicago and Hong Kong. Mr. Fagin retired from Proskauer at the end of 2013 in order to devote himself, as he puts it, “with far greater intensity, to communal activity.” In April 2018, he will have completed his fourth year serving at the helm of the OU, where he has added greater organizational structure and professionalism throughout the organization.
