Jeb Bush to Speak at CSOM Finance Conference Next Month

Jeb Bush, former Governor of Florida and a 2016 Republican candidate for president, will speak at the 12th annual Carroll School Finance Conference at Boston College on June 7-8, The Boston Globe reported. He will deliver a keynote address on the second day following a continental breakfast. Nicholas Burns, BC ’78, former United States Ambassador to Greece and current visiting professor at Harvard, will also give a talk.

The conference will bring together CSOM faculty and prominent figures in the world of finance and investment. The two-day event is intended to “leverage our capital and our network,” according to a message from Dean of CSOM Andrew Boynton and the conference’s co-chairs on BC’s website. Tickets to the event are $250 for alumni, parents, and industry professionals, and $500 for the general public.

Notable attendees include Alfred F. Kelly, Jr., CEO of Visa; Lindsay LoBue, BC ’96 and Advisory Director at Goldman Sachs; and Vince Gubitosi, BC ’94 and president and chief investment officer of Geode Capital Management, LLC.

Past conferences have featured speakers such as Lawrence H. Summers, former U.S. Treasury Secretary and a former president of Harvard, and Larry Kudlow, an economist and senior contributor at CNBC.
