President of the Finance Society and Tau Kappa Epsilon.
Worked in a variety of internships as an undergraduate student with leading banking, financial and investment firms, including Goldman Sachs, BCG Valuations, Bank Leumi USA and the Concord Advisory Group, Ltd.
Jack was introduced to Rider University early in life by a Rider alumnus—his father. After participating in Rider’s Bronc for a Day program in high school, Jack got to see first-hand the benefits of Rider’s small learning environment and appreciated the close interactions students had with their professors. He was drawn even more to University after learning more about his program and the option to earn a specialized business certificate, and later, decided to follow in his father’s footsteps.
Rider’s impact on Jack’s career
During his first-year at Rider, Jack realized that he only had four years to “make the most of the college experience.” So he made it a point to get involved wherever possible, and started networking early on with various Rider alumni and faculty.
Jack got involved with the Student Government Association, and eventually became president of both the Finance Society and his fraternity Tau Kappa Epsilon. Additionally, he spent his undergraduate years interning, working for the Concord Advisory Group, Ldt., BCG Valuations, Bank Leumi USA and Goldman Sachs.
The most valuable thing that I learned while at Rider was independence. Having to simultaneously work on my studies, extracurricular activities and networking towards my post graduate goals taught me a lot.”
