A panel of prominent Wall Street executives, who were assembled to share their career experiences and insights, attracted more than 300 people to an event hosted by the Financial Alumni Network on Oct 1.

Goldman Sachs Chief Financial Officer Harvey Schwartz, a 1987 Rutgers graduate, opened the event by emphasizing the importance of mentors and the role alumni play in supporting Rutgers students with ambitions of working on Wall Street.

"I have a tremendous passion for helping the talented students at Rutgers find jobs," Schwartz said.

Speakers participating in the panel discussion included BNY Mellon Executive Vice President and global treasurer Scott Freidenrich and Mark Friedman, senior managing director of corporate advisory business at Evercore Partners.

They were joined by Daniel Harris, managing director and head of unitholder investor relations at the Carlyle Group and Joseph Moroney, senior portfolio manager and head of Apollo Global Management's U.S. Performing Credit Group. Like Schwartz, all four executives are Rutgers alumni.

Josh Rosenbaum, managing director of the investment banking division at RBC Capital Markets and the co-author of Investment Banking: Valuation, Leveraged Buyouts and Mergers & Acquistions, rounded out the panel of executives.
