Ex- Merrill Lynch Executive Visits UVM School of Business

Win Smith

You just never know who's going to be in UVM School of Business class...a big thank you to Winthrop H. Smith Jr., better known as Win Smith, ex-Merrill Lynch executive and now Sugarbush chief, who took the time to come in and impart his business wisdom with our business school students today.

Win spoke to 2 classes for over an hour each about his career experiences on Wall Street with Merrill Lynch, management style and his new venture of running the Sugarbush ski resort in Vermont. 

He also gave some valuable insights into how business strategy is formed, the integrity needed to run any organization and why "soft skills" are also very important in career development. 

Thank you again Win for taking the time to come in and speak with our students today.
