Cross-Country Caring

When 20-somethings travel to Florida in March, spring break parties are often involved. But for best friends and Class of 2006 alumni David Sutton and Bobby Goldstein, an annual trip to Boynton Beach is a special time to contribute to the community.

A Career on the Move

For Rich Bozzuto ’00, everyday life with his wife and their toddler is quintessentially American: a walk in the park, a swim in the pool, a trip to the local zoo or aquarium. Only now, that life is unfolding on the streets of Shanghai, China, where Bozzuto works as financial controller for IBM Growth Markets.

Appetite for Challenge

As shooting guard and captain of the first Bentley women’s basketball team to make the Division II Final Four, Lori (Bender) King flowed easily between offense and defense, team player and team leader. She puts the same versatility into play in her career.

Bentley Group Takes Expertise to the Street

Meet four people with three things in common: serious expertise in the field of finance, Manhattan business addresses, and strong ties to a certain university in Waltham, Massachusetts. Here, a trio of Bentley alumni and one current parent share the paths that brought them to the New York offices of blue-chip giant Goldman Sachs.

Finance Runs in the Family

Bentley parent Michael DeVito knew early on that he wanted to work in finance. He started his first job on Wall Street even before officially earning a college degree. The year was 1982.

Opportunity Ensured: J. Paul Condrin ’83

The security and peace of mind associated with having insurance may suggest that working in the industry is similarly sedate. For J. Paul Condrin ’83, nothing could be further from the truth.

The president of commercial markets at Liberty Mutual moves a mile-a-minute, overseeing the company’s entire commercial operation. At any given moment, his focus could be anywhere from strategy and marketing to revenue growth and profitability.

“No two days are alike,” he says with obvious relish. “There is constant pressure to improve and grow our business.”

Investment Potential: Lawrence Hughes ’80

Every so often, a classic made-for-the-movies American success story unfolds in real life. Someone takes a chance on a spirited kid who hasn’t had a lot of breaks. The hunch proves correct, as hard work and talent open doors to previously unimagined opportunity. That’s the story of Bentley University and BNY Mellon senior executive Lawrence Hughes ’80.

Hughes’s story began in Somerville, Mass. His mother was a waitress. His father, a truck driver, died when Hughes was 15.

“I had to grow up kind of fast,” he says. “I‘ve had a job since I was 10 years old.”

Raymer Maguire ’10 and Joe Stokes ’09: Keys of Success

Raymer Maguire ’10 (right) and Joe Stokes ’09 have made it their business to keep drunk drivers off the road. Their entrepreneurial venture is called Boston’s Designated Driver (BDD).

Upon request, the company sends a primary driver to meet clients at an appointed location and take them home in their own car. A second driver follows to retrieve the BDD colleague after the drop-off. Prices are based on distance and start at $30 for trips under five miles.
