About

The Bentley Executive Club (BEC) is a dynamic group of approximately 200 Boston-area alumni and parents who are executives and “C”-level officers in organizations across a broad range of industries and professions.

Mission and Board of Directors

We're constantly evolving, innovating and identifying new ways to be of service to Bentley's present — and future. Our forum gives members (like Sue Gorman ’84, below) an opportunity to share experiences, expertise, challenges, ideas and solutions — and to build strong relationships.

Sue Gorman ’84

Sue Gorman ’84
Executive Director for Academic Affairs
Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Science University

Sue Gorman graduated with a degree in Marketing and Management, but it was her work as a bookkeeper that helped launch her career: her first job was an accounting position at a high-tech start-up, where she later became vice president of finance and treasurer. After serving as CFO for two other organizations, Sue moved into higher education, working her way up from CFO to president of the New England School of Acupuncture. In 2015, she was charged with merging the school with MCPHSU, leading to her current role.

What field did you plan on going into when you were at Bentley?

I knew I wanted business but didn’t really know what else that entailed. I really thought I would be in sales — pharmaceuticals sounded enticing. Though it did not really turn out that way, I still get to use some of the same skills. 

What’s your favorite Bentley memory?

Bentley was the first time I’d lived away from home, and all of my best memories came from living on campus those four years. It was also my first chance to work on my leadership skills — something I really wanted to be good at. I was involved in the Student Government Association Senior Class Cabinet, and I was a Residential Assistant. I loved having the chance to represent the student body.

What do you enjoy most about being in the BEC?

The relationships. I was an early board member, vice chair for a number of years and helped build the enrollment of the female members. All of those relationships have been wonderful and we’re steadfast friends; we look out for each other, help each other with career advice and socialize outside of the BEC. This organization was founded in part to have a support system for alumni, and to be a place for successful alumni where we could be an encouraging network for each other. The BEC really goes beyond support and into real friendship that I hope and expect to have until I’m a very old lady!
