About Maureen Mackenzie

After graduating from Molloy College, Maureen joined Allstate Insurance, where she held various leadership positions over her 20-year corporate career. One of her more influential leadership roles was as Chairperson of the Fraudulent and Abusive Practices committee of the NY State Insurance Department. During this period she influenced a renewed industry focus to reduce underwriting and rating fraud.   
In 2012 Maureen re-joined her Alma Mater, Molloy College, as a member of the faculty.  She assumed the role of Graduate Dean in January 2015, and now serves as the Dean of the Division of Business. 
The 2013 MBA graduating class awarded Maureen the Faculty Recognition Award.  Subsequently, Maureen was invited to be a guest on the PBS show, “The Long Island Business Report” with Jim Paymar to discuss “Women in Business.” Maureen’s recently published research on Business Ethics reported on what academic institutions must do to better prepare future leaders for the ethical dilemmas they will face.  Maureen served as the President of the Northeast Business and Economics Association ( and currently serves on its board of Directors.  
Maureen is a proud member of the Energeia Partnership, which was founded by Molloy College.  The partnership brings together a diverse group of ethical leaders from Long Island's public, private and not-for-profit sectors to help address this region's most complex issues involving: education, institutional racism, land use, energy, transportation, healthcare and poverty and the working poor. 
Maureen is an advocate for transformative education.  She redesigned the Graduate and Undergraduate capstone courses so that business students, prior to graduating, demonstrate their newly gained knowledge and skills in the real-world. The students work for a not-for-profit to solve a key issue that the organization faces. An essential by-product is the development of a disposition toward the value that not-for-profits add to our society; an organization that serves Long Island and Long Islanders.  Over these past five years, as a member of the Molloy family, Maureen has enabled business students to serve clients that include:  Rotacare, Inc., Paths of Hope, Island Harvest, The Long Island Regional Planning Council, Sustainable Long Island, Canine Companions for Independence, The Health and Welfare Council of Long Island, The Nassau County Commission on Human Rights, The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center, Mercy Hospital, The Nassau County Bar Association, The Villages of Babylon, Mastic Beach, Port Jefferson, and Freeport. She is especially proud of the student work performed that serves those Long Islanders most in need of service.   
Maureen, as the Dean of the Division of Business at Molloy, is proud that she and her faculty have brought a renewed focus toward the students’ development of a disposition toward ethical leadership, and social responsibility, while cultivating the professional skills and values-based behaviors that prepare them for future leadership.
