Valuable Networking Guidance for Young Alumni

Valuable Networking Guidance for Young Alumni

A recent alumni gathering proved once again that Saints show up for Saints even after they graduate. Nearly 25 New York metropolitan area alumni came together at BlackRock in Manhattan for a Young Alumni Networking event hosted by the Society of Alumni’s New York Chapter.

Three alumni panelists addressed the young graduates in attendance:

Denise Morgenthaler ’90 currently serves as the Global Chief Administration Officer with the Treasury Services Global Payments business of BNY Mellon. Her key areas of responsibility include global business governance, risk and control management, internal communications, and people and location strategy.

Brent Ozarowski ’95 joined Newmark in 2005 at the firm’s Manhattan headquarters after playing six years of professional hockey for both national and international teams. Today, Brent is an Executive Managing Director focused on the representation of leading corporations and property owners in New York.  

Jason Fogelson ’97 has 20+ years of working in Investment Grade Corporate Bond trading. Jason is a Managing Director at Jefferies, where his focus is trading telecom, media, technology, and leisure sectors. His past experience includes managing $15 billion corporate credit and credit default swap portfolios.

They each spoke about their lives and careers beyond the hilltop while sharing valuable advice with their younger peers, whose grad years ranged from 2009 to 2019. New York Chapter Leadership Team members Will Finn ’07 and Alec Woodworth ’11 moderated the panel.

New York Chapter President Elizabeth Dooley ’10 was thrilled that the chapter was hosting its first-ever networking event. “Thanks to our three amazing and accomplished panelists, we were able to have engaging conversations about networking, interviewing, growth, and the macro environment,” she said. “We look forward to hosting more events like this in the future!”
