President's Council Members Guest Speak to "Personal Leadership"
Class at Rose Hill

Almost by definition, the President's Council is synomymous with leadership. Our members not only have well developed personal leadership syles and strengths, but also many philosophies about successful leadership to share with our students. This past spring semester, four President's Council members visited Professor Nancy McCarthy's "Personal Leadership" class and shared their observations about leadership with the students. Thank you Dave Almeida, Sander Flaum, Bob Gach, and Joe Skrzypczak for lending your perspectives with our students!

The President's Council is invited back this coming academic year to Prof. McCarthy's class for select dates. If you are interested in sharing your thoughts on leadership with our students, please be in touch with Julie Fissinger at fissinger@fordham.edu. Thank you.

Marymount Alumna Comes Back to Give Back

Carolyn Dolan
Carolyn N. Dolan, MC’68    

Carolyn Dolan, a founding principal of Samson Capital Advisors, urged Fordham Business students to think independently and be wary of “lemming-type behavior in the investment world,” during a guest lecture in the class of John Finnerty, Ph.D., professor of finance. A good money manager, she said, has the ability to step back and analyze commonly accepted investment strategies in light of their client's long-term objectives. Dolan returned to Finnerty's class to deliver a second guest lecture on active fixed income investment management.

A Fordham University trustee and a member of the President’s Council, Dolan began her career as a social worker with the New Jersey Department of Health's Division of Youth and Family Services after graduating from Marymount College in 1968. She received a master's degree from Columbia University School of Social Work in 1977, and one year later earned an M.B.A. in finance from Columbia. In 1982, she co-founded Offitbank, now Offit Investment Group, where she served as a senior managing director.
