NEW YORK — Adam Weber, the third-generation president of insurance company Irving Weber Associates (IWA), died Thursday after a long, courageous battle with cancer, IWA announced. He was 57.
Weber’s grandfather Irving and father Dennis started IWA, a specialized insurance provider for the drycleaning and commercial laundry industry, and Adam took over the reins in 1986.
During his tenure, he was crucial to realizing IWA’s dream to become the largest insurer of dry cleaners in the country, plus a full-fledged corporation that has branched out into other categories of insurance, the company says.
Weber was an exceptional entrepreneur and mentor, IWA adds, and will be remembered for his vision, generosity and friendship.
He is survived by his wife, Jodi, and three sons, Parker, Harrison and Griffin.
