Students to participate in WVU business school’s Private Equity Forum Oct. 15

October 12, 2015


Students from West Virginia University will have the opportunity to take part in a Private Equity Forum, thanks to the College of Business and Economics, on Oct. 15 in the Mountainlair Ballroom from 6-8 p.m.

The forum, in its third year, will feature John Scerbo, founder of the Sensory Network, which enables the pursuit of partnership and exploration of unique ideas with high-achieving individuals and institutions. He also serves in emeritus capacity at Catterton Partners, and previously served as chief financial officer.

Scerbo has extensive experience in private equity, corporate finance, and operations. He served on the Board of the New York chapter of the Private Equity C.F.O. Association. Last year, Scerbo was awarded with the 2014 Private Equity Manager Leadership Award.

“For students who don’t know exactly what private equity is, this event will be incredibly helpful and will provide an opportunity for them to see the private equity career opportunities that are out there,” said Frank DeGeorge, a teaching instructor in the College’s Finance Department. “Students will also be educated about what B&E has to offer in terms of this field. We’re privileged to work with John Scerbo once again for this event.”

Scerbo also serves on the College of B&E’s Visiting Committee.
