Timothy J. Horohoe '91

The Brother Patrick B. Doyle Award for Distinguished Service to the Alumni Association

After graduating from Iona in 1991, Timothy J. Horohoe took a position with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and then enlisted in the US Marine Corps Reserve. He served for 26 years in the New York City Police Department before retiring as a detective sergeant in the intelligence division. Since 2020, he has been a Director at Related Companies’ Hudson Yards, where he oversees the campus security operations coordination center.

Tim returns often to campus. In his undergraduate days, he was active in Sigma Delta Phi fraternity and the Pipe Band, where he developed lifelong friendships which continue to this day.

Always an advocate for Iona, he often jokes that every party he hosts is an Iona reunion, given that his numerous friends and neighbors are fellow Gaels. Tim never misses an opportunity to recruit potential students or to re-engage alumni.

Twice elected to the Alumni Board of Directors, he follows the men’s basketball team, has given his time to the annual career mentor nights, served as a class representative for his 25th and 30th reunions, and attended the Board of Trustees Scholarship Awards Gala. He is a perennial fixture at Iona’s Homecoming Weekend.

Bringing Iona alumni together is something he enjoys, whether organizing the very well attended annual Iona-Manhattan basketball watch parties at the Pearl River Saloon, planning the Iona Pipe Band’s 50th anniversary or coordinating with Office of Alumni Engagement in support of the Sigma Delta Phi fraternity 50th anniversary reunion. Each of those anniversary events saw more than 200 alumni return to campus.

Tim met his lovely wife, the former Christine Mullen ’89 at Iona, and together they consider themselves fortunate that so many of their Iona friendships have endured. They are the proud parents of James (Fordham ’17), a current MBA student at Iona’s LaPenta School of Business and working in sales; Kate (Scranton ’19, & MS ’20), a practicing occupational therapist; and Aidan, currently a junior in Iona’s honors program.

Tim received his Master of Public Administration from CUNY John Jay College, where he has taught as an adjunct professor for 16 years, and an MA in Criminal Justice from SUNY Albany. Presently pursuing a doctorate at St. John’s University, he is a sought-after lecturer on topics including policing, social media investigations and threat assessments.

The proud product of a Christian Brothers’ education beginning at Monsignor Farrell High School, Tim is proud to be a part of Iona’s tradition of service. He's happy to engage with so many alumni and grateful for this award.
