Letter from the President

 
Jonathan Schreter (MBA '00)

I’m incredibly excited to be serving as your UCLA Anderson Alumni Network President for the next two years. By nature, I am a connector… I LOVE connecting people to people, companies to people, potential partners to potential partners, and on and on. As a student at Anderson, I really enjoyed the many opportunities I had to connect with new opportunities, learning experiences, and future friends/colleagues.
