Holy ____! Are We the First?

Jeffrey A. NattansLoyola graduate Jeffrey A. Nattans, '89, will discuss his experiences at Loyola and role in leadership at Legg Mason as part of Loyola University Maryland’s Green & Grey Alumni Speaker Series on Thursday, Oct. 24, at 6:30 p.m. in McGuire Hall.

In his lecture, “Holy _____! Are We the First?”, Nattans will speak from his experience at Legg Mason, where he is the head of mergers & acquisitions with a focus on strategic investment activities and initiatives. He joined Legg Mason in 2006 as a managing director in administrative management.

Prior to Legg Mason, Nattans served as a vice president in the investment banking division with Goldman Sachs in New York from 1996 to 2006. Nattans earned his MBA from Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration, and his Bachelor of Business Administration, summa cum laude, from Loyola University Maryland. Nattans currently serves on the Board of Trustees at Loyola and previously as the chair of the Board Sponsors of the Sellinger School of Business and Management. He also serves as the vice chair of the Board of Trustees at Calvert Hall College High School.

While at Loyola, Nattans played soccer and basketball and was named the Northeast Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year and was a two-time Academic All-American in soccer. Nattans was also in the first class of the Green & Grey Society. He went on to play for the Maryland Bays of the American Professional Soccer League and was inducted into the Maryland Soccer Hall of Fame, the Loyola Athletic Hall of Fame, and the Calvert Hall Alumni Hall of Fame.

After the lecture, LoyolaConnect Live will organize alumni and faculty around the room into five groups focused on: business, education, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Faculty, alumni, and students will network about their area of study and where those studies have taken them throughout their lives and careers, whether they've taken a traditional path—accounting major to accountant—or untraditional—English major to tech entrepreneur. Please join us. Your experiences are important to share!

Registration is recommended, as seating is limited.

About the Speaker Series

Each year at homecoming, the Green & Grey Alumni Speakers Series will invite alumni who were members of Loyola’s Green & Grey Society to speak on campus. As undergraduates, this group represented a cross-section of undergraduate communities and leadership paths at the University. As alumni, Green & Grey graduates have pursued a wide range of fields and have made indelible marks in their fields. From professors to artists, to politicians to musicians, business tycoons to leaders in medicine and law, these Loyola graduates have forged paths in virtually every arena. The seeds planted during those undergraduate years continue to flourish and nurture their influence on a diverse and changing world. As alumni of influence who embody our University motto, “Strong Truths Well Lived,” these graduates demonstrate the impact of a Loyola education.

This event is a collaboration with the office of the president, career services, the office of alumni engagement, and SGA.
