More than 100 GWSB alumni traveled from across the country during the 2010 GWSB Graduate Programs Reunion, held Sept. 30- Oct. 3, to honor alumni who exemplify the GWSB pillars: Act responsibly, lead passionately and think globally.

Dean Doug Guthrie honored Tom di Galoma, MBA, ’85, senior managing director and head of the U.S. Fixed Income Rates Trading Group at Guggenheim Partners, LLC; Vicky Lazzell, MBA,’80, senior vice president, Boston Private Bank & Trust Company; Beverly Bogerty, MTA, ’00, owner of Occasions, Inc.; and Burlie Brunson, EMBA, ’95, vice president of programs, plans, and analysis for Lockheed Martin Corporate Strategy and Business Development.

The GWSB Distinguished Alumni Achievement Awards, given annually, are the highest honor given by the Dean to alumni of GWSB Graduate Programs. Recipients are selected based on their lasting influence on the GWSB community though outstanding contributions in the areas of work, wealth and wisdom.

Immediately following the ceremony, attendees joined the University Alumni Weekend participants at the Barenaked Ladies concert on the University Yard.
