Students met with NYIT alumni working at some of the top financial firms in New York City for the second annual “Day on Wall Street” on Nov. 5, 2009. Sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations and the School of Management, the event began at the New York Federal Reserve Bank, where Roseann Stichnoth (M.B.A. ’82), senior vice president of operations, gave students a special presentation on the world of finance, followed by a tour of the Federal Reserve’s gold vault.
Later, the group visited the Museum of American Finance and took the subway back to the Manhattan campus for lunch with NYIT faculty, staff, and alumni. Richard Pizer, provost and vice president for academic affairs, delivered opening remarks, and NYIT graduates Chris Erickson (B.S. ’85), managing director, global chief operating officer of prime services, UBS; Boaz Rahar (M.B.A. ’98), managing director, Northeast Securities; Solomon Samson (M.B.A. ’79), managing director of corporate ratings, Standard & Poor’s New York; and Martin Feuer (B.S. ’72), chief compliance officer, Zurich Financial Services, shared insights regarding their businesses and held Q&A sessions with students following their presentations.
