From the April 15 statement by the U.S. Department of State:
Daniel W. Yohannes ('76) was sworn in on April 15 as the United States Ambassador to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). He was nominated by President Barack Obama on September 11, 2013, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on April 9, 2014.
John Shrewsberry ’87, currently head of Wells Fargo Securities and an executive vice president, has been named the new chief financial officer and senior executive vice president of Wells Fargo.
There’s an old axiom about investing that says always remember to buy low and sell high.
It’s a long (and self-evident) view toward acquiring wealth that would be foolish to deny. Indeed, during an Athenaeum luncheon on April 21 entitled A Conversation on Investing, guest speakers (both investment heavy hitters), George Roberts ’66 P’93 and Britt Harris, agreed but with a slight twist. In Roberts and Harris’ view, it’s better for individual investors to buy low and then wait, wait, wait and then wait some more before selling, maybe.
Fourteen CMC student teams competed in the 6th Annual Robert Day School (RDS) Case Competition on April 4.
This year’s winning team which won a cash prize of $5000, consisted of Alexandra Arnett ’16, Jeffrey Hochhauser ’15, Sara Linssen ’16, and Ben Turner ’16. Together, these students evaluated a case entitled “Centurion Media: Doing the Right Thing.”
It’s not often that student groups come to the aid of business interests. Usually, it’s the other way around. But sometimes turnabout is fair play, especially when everyone benefits.
