Dean Doug Guthrie addresses GWSB alumni during Alumni Weekend 2012, Sept. 27-30. Among the School’s events were the 6th Annual Ramsey Student Investment Fund Conference, a Dean’s tailgate party, and an Earth, Wind and Fire concert for all GW alumni.

Alumni weekend at GWSB kicked off with the Ramsey Student Investment Conference on Friday, Sept. 28, and a strong turnout from members of the School’s Board of Advisors for their two-day fall meeting with Dean Doug Guthrie and Board Chairman Mitchell Blaser, BBA, `73.

The Ramsey conference featured a keynote address by Lee Fensterstock, a GW trustee and parent, and the chairman and CEO of Fensterstock Associates, a company formed to invest in the financial services industry.  Board member Jonathan J. Hochberg, BBA, ’85, sat on a panel to answer student and alumni questions about trends and opportunities in the financial markets.

On Friday evening, board members joined Dean Guthrie for a reception that was attended by more than 100 alumni. Board member Michael Quinn, BA, ’84, sat on a Saturday morning panel, entitled “Paths to Startup Success,” that brought together alumni and students interested in entrepreneurship.

On Saturday evening, board member Burlie Brunson, EMBA, ’95, hosted a reception for Executive MBA alumni, kicking off a year of events in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the EMBA program.
