John R. Shrewsberry '92 Executive Vice President
Wells Fargo Securities, LLC
"Every day in my business life I am reminded of the value of my degree as I use the quantitative and leadership skills that I learned almost 20 years ago at Yale SOM. I continue to appreciate how unique this program is with its emphasis on government and nonprofit management as well as for-profit business. In today’s environment of increased government regulation, that emphasis and understanding is more valuable than ever.
The impact of the program extends beyond my professional life. Many of my closest friends and associates today are people I met at Yale SOM. I think the people you choose to keep close to you reflect your system of values and beliefs and I am proud to count my former classmates among my closest friends."
