“We are so honored to be able to pay tribute to these two individuals, Mr. Abraham and Mr. Shepherd, on such a special occasion for Chrysalis,” said Adlai Wertman, chairman of the Chrysalis board of directors. “Both gentlemen have demonstrated outstanding leadership and have gone beyond the call of duty to help those less fortunate. Their recognition is long overdue.”

Abraham formed Beacon in 1990 with Armyan Bernstein, the company’s chairman. Beacon’s pic include “The Commitments,” “Air Force One,” “A Thousand Acres,” “The Hurricane,” “End of Days” and “For Love of the Game.”
