2023 Red and Blue

On September 19, The Wharton Club of Boston held its annual Red and Blue event at the beautiful PTC building in the Seaport.   Orchestrated by Event Chair and Board Member Wendy Dalwin, over 50 Wharton Alumni attended, and the program was highlighted by a talk from Mike DiTullio, PTC President and Chief Operating Officer.  In addition to Mike’s talk featuring all the different well-known brands which use PTC software, we heard from board member, Beth Somers Stutzman, about how business school grads continue to add significant value to nonprofits in need of business expertise to improve their effectiveness through Community Consulting Teams Boston (CCT). CCT offers pro bono strategic consulting projects to mission-driven nonprofits using teams of business professionals.
