The Vision Award honors a Bentley graduate for his or her embodiment of the Bentley experience – one that uniquely prepares students for success in today’s competitive marketplace.
The honoree is an alumni leader with a special commitment to the career development of today’s undergraduate students.
This year, the inaugural Vision Award was presented to PJ Neal ‘02, a Bentley alumnus with a passion for assisting others. Professionally, Neal puts this commitment to work as a senior engagement manager for the corporate learning division at Harvard Business School Publishing Corporation. The role includes overseeing the sale, design and technical support of programs delivered to corporate and government clients across the globe. Personally, Neal lends Bentley students a helping hand as the go-to alumnus for advice in the field of consulting.
Neal’s passion for the university extends well beyond career guidance. P.J. is a partner to Bentley in every sense of the word, serving as president of the Young Alumni Association, student mentor and admission ambassador. Currently, PJ serves as the Chairman of the Alumni Board Task Force, and is working hand-in-hand with university leaders and a group of alumni to create a new strategy for the alumni association.
