The Next Generation of Financial Advisors
Oscar Garner III, Weekly News Contributor
Hey everyone! My name is Oscar Garner III and I am a senior finance major who is rather new to the organization. Although I am just starting, I am very excited to work with WMA and the Weekly News Team. WMA is one of Broad’s newer RSOs and I think we have a great opportunity to grow and build the organization alongside the Wealth Management Program. The professional, personal, and academic opportunities alone are enough to excite any driven MSU business student.
Outside of my involvement with WMA, I have worn several hats across the MSU landscape. Of which I am most proud, I am a part of the Chick Evans Scholarship Foundation (ESF) which sends caddies to college for free on the basis of academic success, work ethic and financial need. For the MSU chapter of the ESF, I serve as the VP of New Scholar Education which serves as an advisory role to transition our incoming class of scholars from high school senior to college freshmen, academically and socially. In addition to that, I have spent a couple years with both Student Investment Association (SIA) and the Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU). When I graduate in May of 2020, I plan to sit for the Certified Planner Exam and continue my career in wealth management. As I move forward with my involvement in WMA, I look to build on my academic and professional experiences while also adding to the organization and the MSU Broad community as a whole.
I know that this academic year will look very different but, for those reading, do not allow our current circumstances to deter you from getting involved. This is a great opportunity to learn more about wealth management, develop your professional skills, network with industry and university leaders and meet some great students. I look forward to what we have in store.
Vincent Pucillo, Weekly News Contributor
Hi everybody! My name is Vincent Pucillo and I am a Junior Marketing major with a minor in Entrepreneurship & Innovation as well as a participant in MSU’s Wealth Management Program. I discovered the MSU Wealth Management Association through my participation of the Wealth Management Program and I am excited to be working with and being part of this great organization as a Weekly News Contributor.
In addition to this, some other extracurriculars I have participated in are the Broad Mentorship Program and the Burgess Institute for Entrepreneurship. Along with this, I am also working at Digested Organics based in Farmington Hills, MI working as a Sales & Business Development Intern.
My goal is to deliver the most relevant and informative business news stories for WMA members to keep everyone informed about what is happening in the current business and finance world. I am looking forward to meeting with you at our next meeting.
