“The HBS Club of Atlanta has given me friendships, exposure to local business leaders and HBS faculty members, a wealth of information on the many changes at the School, the opportunity to contribute as an officer and director of the Club and as a director of the HBS Alumni Association and mentoring opportunities. I recently was able to help a young graduate find a new job. If all this weren’t enough, the Club has been very helpful in my business as a merger and acquisition consultant. Multiple transactions I have closed were introduced to me by other members of the Club, who have been unfailingly generous in sharing knowledge and relationships.”

“I attended my 25th reunion this September in the midst of the financial meltdown. It was great to hear real time input from Harvard faculty and other alumni. The Atlanta HBS Club lets me maintain that Harvard connection. I’ve enjoyed the breakfast series, the Virtual Lunch Series, and the SIG events, which are a fun way to hear from successful business leaders in a small- group, interactive setting.”
