Spring 2017 Speaker: Suzanne Shank

Connections:  The Characters and Context that Create Great Leaders
February 21, 2017

The most powerful woman on Wall Street. Or maybe Wall Street’s $2 trillion woman. However you want to look at it, Suzanne Shank, BCE 1983, has risen to the pinnacle of finance in America, co-founding a firm that has overseen trillions of dollars in municipal bond and corporate financing deals. Roads, airports, schools, bridges — she’s done all that and more. And it all started with her Georgia Tech civil engineering education. (Read her full bio.)

The Hyatt Distinguished Alumni Leadership Speaker Series taps the School's broad alumni base to bring a distinguished leader to campus each fall and spring who can share wisdom and insight with the School's students and the wider Georgia Tech community. It is made possible by the generous support of Kenneth Hyatt, BCE 1962, MSIM 1966.
