From the President


As newly elected Co-Presidents, along with our experienced leadership team, we are excited to bring a new year of events and engagements to Wharton alumni and friends in the Boston area! While COVID-19 has certainly brought challenges with our ability to connect with each other, we are committed to engaging the Wharton alumni community and delivering quality programming through these difficult times.

The Club’s leadership understands the importance of delivering content that can be useful for all graduating classes. Whether these events involve career skills development, virtual networking, community service, or industry speakers, we think everyone can find something to enjoy.

Engaging young alumni is of particular importance under our leadership as we hope to extend the Wharton experience to those recently moving to the Boston area post-graduation and to ensure they have active participation in the club for years to come. We aim to provide recent grads as well as long-time Wharton alumni with the same support and collegial spirit we had during our days on Penn’s campus.

Please reach out to us with questions, comments, or ideas that you think can help make the club feel more like a home for everyone. We welcome the opportunity to get to know club members on both a personal and professional level through one-on-one engagements in order to better understand how we can continue to improve the Wharton Club of Boston experience for all of us.

If you have classmates in the area that are not aware of our events, feel free to invite them! We encourage all local Wharton alumni to use the club as a way to stay connected with each other and continue a love for life-long learning.

We hope to see you all soon, whether in person or on Zoom, and we look forward to a great year!


2020-2021 Co-Presidents

David Rittner W’11 & Jock Payten WG’18
