Rabbi Avrohom D. Hecht - Igud HoRabbonim conference, 1956

Rabbi Hecht - who passed away on Motzoei Shabbos Chof Daled Teves - is heard here introducing the Israeli Consul General at the same conference that featured the late Ponovizher Rov as well.  He was Rov in the Sefardic "Shaarei Zion" shul for over a yovel, until his retirement soon after the Rabin assassination. The above link will give you the biographical sketch you seek.

He was a eidem by Reb Burech Greenhut. Originally shochet in Mattesdorf and later the first Tzelemer shochet here in Williamsburg.
