Henry Brandon III ('89)'s father dreamed that his son would become a doctor. Brandon pursued college coursework in human biology at Stanford, but his interests led him to a degree in economics and ultimately a career in investment finance. As a MBA student, he built relationships with staff and faculty who he still counts as lifelong friends and advisors today. One of those connections is Linda Baldwin who ran the then nascent Riordan Programs. Due to her encouragement, Brandon not only mentored program participants but helped her move the program forward—and that support continued after graduation. For his decades long-commitment to the Riordan Programs and UCLA Anderson, Brandon is being recognized with the 2021 Outstanding Alumni Service Award.
