“Everything I’ve learned at FIU I’ve been able to apply to my career,” said Fenton, who handles marketing materials and oversight of investment consultants, managers, and general duties for the foundation, which is the charitable branch of the archdiocese in South Florida. “When I chose finance as my major, I never thought I’d need any marketing skills or very little. I was absolutely wrong.”
He looks forward to using the Business Alumni Chapter to engage with the current student body “because they are the future of this school and this community” and to “bringing together the different alumni groups and uniting them under a common cause and goals.”
