Decluttering is a huge trend today, as people across the country are taking to their closets, garages and living spaces to pare down and simplify their lives. For Lucy Milligan Wahl ('10), this activity has always been a passion, and her time at UCLA Anderson turned out to be the launchpad for her professional organizing career.
Are you joining the 1,300+ people that are coming back for Alumni Weekend to relive business school? Don’t miss the opportunity to brainstorm business issues with Anderson faculty and alumni, discover the next new big idea, or meet your next business partner or client.
As they prepare to celebrate their 15-year Anderson class reunion, twin brothers and best friends Jim (’04) and John Baudino (‘04) reflect on their shared experiences and distinctive paths to their current careers. Today, they work in two different and rapidly changing industries: marketing technology and the cannabis industry. John, who is the global vice president at Acxiom, is dubbed as the “data” guy whereas Jim, VP of corporate development for Merry Jane Media, is the “marketer.” However, that wasn't always the case as their lives ran parallel prior to attending business school together.
The Baudinos and the classes of ’84, ’89, ’94, ’99, ’04, ’09, ’14, ’18, and MFE alumni will be celebrating their respective reunions on May 4.
