President's Message

Welcome to the Wharton Club of Houston Website!

The Wharton Alumni Association is one of the most exclusive and influential networks in the world.  As President of the Houston chapter, it is my honor to continue building and managing an infrastructure that provides professional and personal growth opportunities for our diverse alumni – close to 2000 in all walks and stages in life, and from all over the globe.

Our Club is for everyone affiliated to the Wharton School. We invite you to join us in building and enriching our alumni community.

We aspire to create tangible value for our members.  Our goal is to become the go-to place for career enrichment, business growth, networking, community outreach opportunities, intellectual stimulation, and social interaction.

Our officers, board members, and volunteers are committed to this goal and are working on a broad series of virtual and in-person events.  These include webinars, speaker luncheons, networking breakfasts, exclusive investment opportunities, happy hours, special behind-the-scenes tours of local landmarks and institutions, boating trips, community and business outreach, mentoring, and establishing a new scholarship fund. I am grateful for, and humbled by the dedication, energy, and talent of these alumni.

I invite you to participate in our activities, meet old friends and make new ones, bring us your ideas, and join us in creating a vibrant alumni community in Houston!  You are the critical drivers of our Club’s success!

I look forward to seeing you at one of our events.  Please reach out anytime with questions or ideas.
