I am pleased to share that we have established the WithumSmith+Brown Alumni Group. In early stage development (with a snappier name in the works, as well), its purpose is to connect past relationships with present opportunities, creating a more powerful future for all. Former Withum staff are invited to join this group to be kept apprised of opportunities at our firm related to career development, client development, CPE programs, networking events and industry thought sharing. Our new partner Michael Kulick is spearheading the effort, working closely with Marketing on executing a variety of efforts to fully maximize the potential of this valuable resource.
Our current list of Alumni has about 460 contacts. But we need some assistance with getting in touch with all of them. Are you still in contact with anyone on the attached list? If so, we could use your help!
- If you have the email address for anyone on this list, please forward it to Mike so we can update their information in our CRM system. They will receive our Tax Tips, A&A Alerts, The Journal quarterly newsletter and event invitations. We do have physical mailing addresses.
- We’ve created a LinkedIn Group for our Alumni to join, using this as a channel to share news and networking opportunities. If you are connected to anyone on this list, please send them a LinkedIn message, inviting them to join.
- Did you receive a resume from one of our former staff who might be seeking new career opportunities? Please forward it along to Mike! We are creating a database of resumes to share with clients and friends of the firm who reach out to us seeking qualified finance professionals. This will be a valuable benefit to our Alumni Group members. Of course, if someone is seeking employment at Withum, they should send the resume to HR.
The first networking opportunity for the Alumni Group members will be an invitation to attend our Client CPE in November, followed by cocktail reception immediately after. Any help from our Withum family in making this initiative a success would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to email Mike (email@example.com) with Alumni contact information or any questions you may have about this initiative.
