Statement on the passing of Samuel Dunston

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Samuel Dunston, a long-time friend and colleague who was very active with our organization over the  past several decades. Sam served as a Brooklyn Chamber Board Member and was co-founder  of our Minority and Women Business Enterprise Committee. Sam was an honoree at  our Black History Month Celebration this past February, where we proudly announced the  establishment of the Samuel Dunston Business Excellence Award, whose first recipient was Dr. Roy Hastick, who we lost shortly after in April. 

Sam Dunston was President and Founder of National Allotment Insurance Agency, formed in  the 1970’s. Under his leadership, National Allotment formed strong relationships with the  nation’s most prestigious insurance carriers, earning National Allotment the highest ratings from  Standard & Poor’s and AM Best Company. Sam received numerous awards for his work in the  insurance field, and for his extensive advocacy work with minority business owners.  

On behalf of the Brooklyn Chamber’s Board of Directors and staff, we extend our heartfelt  sympathy for the loss of this dear man who selflessly served our business community. His tireless work will continue to benefit those he touched over the years, and his friendship and  wisdom will be sorely missed. 

Randy Peers 

President and CEO
