Darden’s Alumni Leaders Shine in Shanghai
Last week, Darden’s Professor Dennis Yang, Global Advisory Council Chair Ro King (MBA ’91) and Dick Mayo (MBA ’68) travelled to Shanghai to represent Darden at the 2017 CEIBS Private Wealth Investment Forum, co-hosted by Darden this year as an extension of the fourth annual Shanghai Investing Summit. Darden’s alumni leaders based in Shanghai, including Jimmy Wei (MBA ’02), Bill Sun (MBA ’09) and Shawn Liu (MBA ’05) also represented Darden at the Forum Speakers’ Dinner on 7 April. After a full day of conference activities and discussions around global investing, Darden alumni also gathered on Sunday 9 April for a luncheon to catch up with each other and discuss Darden’s presence in Shanghai. Shaojian Zhang (MBA ’99) and Wei Jin (MBA ’99), leaders of Darden’s alumni chapter in China, were instrumental in organizing alumni at the various activities in early April and bringing the group together for maximum impact. Support throughout the activities in Shanghai was also provided by UVA’s China Office, led by Justin O’Jack.
