Face Time with Wendeen

  • Most everyone agrees that politics is personal, but for Wendeen it has meant friendships - many of long standing that have grown without boundaries and without being inhibited by varying political thought.

    Looking back upon a special birthday, shortly before election night in 1994, Wendeen pauses to consider the blessing of stalwart friends, no matter their political persuasions.

  • In mid-September Wendeen and her guest, Martin Levine sallied forth to the annual gala for the New Yorkers for Children at Cipriani 42nd Street, enthusiastic about the extraordinary stars they would see that evening. 

    A member of the board of directors for more than a decade, Wendeen knew, as usual, that extraordinary would be out in force that night. Yes, there were marquee names, but the honors and ovations were reserved for the true stars of the evening: teens in foster care, who are assisted... Read More

  • Last weekend Rick Marek, President of the prestigious real estate leasing boutique, Vortex Group,  hosted an  annual summer cocktail party with tall drinks and big servings of Wendeen's homemade lobster salad at his luxurious Watermill spread.

    Longtime friends, Rick and Wendeen began their respective careers in the same year--more than a few years ago and are known to visit with each other and mutual friends on Marek's manicured lawn each summer. En rolute to the lawn this year, Wendeen chatted ... Read More

  • Wendeen lands in Las Vegas to visit with casino clients before taking a seat in the ultimate poker game—the main event at the 2012 WSOP. She survives day one, thanks to the great table-side masseuses.

    She advances to the next round with a healthy chip stack, but on day two she enjoys an eight hour thrill before circling back to client matters. 

  • Standing next to her very first dancing partner from 1962 and our class president, Wendeen shares fond memories from the lunch time discotheque to the rigors of practice. Artists all, Wendeen recalls her senior project  - a Beethoven's sonata.

  • At the International Women's Forum in Morocco "dine-arounds" with diplomats, academics, and corporate CEOs were among the most popular events in the non-stop two day program.

    At the home of Ambassador and Mme Saida Bennami IbnBrahim, Wendeen was among the invited guests to take part in a unique evening. The discussion was lively, the food traditional, the host was unpretentious, and the collectibles a true feast for the eyes. 

  • On the first business day in January 1995, Governor George Pataki invited Wendeen to lunch at his new digs on the 57th floor of World Trade Center 2.

    He showed her around the offices and upon opening the door to a luxurious space with a drop dead view of the New York Harbor, proposed that she accept a position in the administration as First Assistant and Senior Advisor to the Governor.

    It was an offer she could not refuse and a job to which she devoted herself as an independent thinker... Read More

  • Wendeen looks back on the best of times with her first full-fledged love, celebrating at NY's Copacabana.  Forty-five years later she inquires - with determination about events at the site of the Crimp Operation in the Cu Chi tunnels--with so many memories of her ROTC-trained 2nd liutenant who rose to captain overseas. 

  • The Women's Forum small dinners are reason enough for accomplished women to want to be part of this organization.  It is filled with leaders and trend setters who share empathy, enthusiasm and desire to achieve more.

    Tonight's dinner was a salon style affair featuring women's stories of transformative travels around the world.
