With only a few weeks left before the end of Northwestern’s fiscal year on August 31, I hope you will make your gift to any area of the University that is meaningful to you—your professional school, program, or any number of funds that support a life-changing experience for graduate students.
After attending college at Northwestern and working on Wall Street, I eventually returned to Evanston to pursue a master’s degree at the Kellogg School of Management. I was able to deepen my knowledge of finance and round out my skill sets in areas such as strategy and marketing. It was invaluable training that helped me on the path to becoming a Managing Director and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Sagent Advisors.
My wife Lisa and I give back to Northwestern because it offers the full package—a diverse community, a top research university that prides itself on giving individualized attention to students, a lively college town setting, infectious school spirit, Big Ten athletics, and Chicago just a train ride away.
I’m energized by the growth of the University and the physical changes I see on campus, including state-of-the-art facilities that enhance the great sense of community and the excitement, vibe, and ambition of the exceptional students who will go on to become tomorrow’s leaders in their respective fields.
Northwestern made an impact on me, and now I’m thrilled to make an impact on Northwestern’s students.
