With so much change, join your CEO/President peers for an intimate, small group discussion

The WCDFW has launched a series of exclusive lunches, each one focused on a very specific professional function. This is a great way to not only network but to develop more connected relationships with Wharton peers. These micro-events are typically in person over lunch, but given current health precautious, we will have a virtual “brown bag” lunch discussion via Skype. The purpose of the micro-lunches is to provide an intimate setting in which our alumni can meet and engage their peer group in a protected, informative, and effective way, and this virtual discussion is capped to 10 attendees. 

This event will be sponsored by Mark Sinatra, WG'06, CEO of Aspen HR and co-founder of ETA Equity, and will be dedicated to those Wharton alumni who are Presidents or CEOs of their organization.  Mark will kick off the discussion with his experience in preparing his company for sale, the process that led to maximizing value and his current assessment of the M&A market.

Mark Sinatra is a 2006 MBA graduate of Wharton. He is currently the CEO of Aspen HR, which is a HR services company focused on serving the financial services industry. Mark is also the co-founder of ETA Equity, which is a private investment firm that invests in search funds. Prior to Aspen HR and ETA Equity, Mark was CEO of Staff One HR where he led the company through a period of substantial growth highlighted by achieving the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies for four years in a row, and culminating in Staff One HR’s sale to its largest privately-held competitor, Oasis Outsourcing, in December 2017. Mark oversaw the Western half of the country for Oasis Outsourcing until its sale to Paychex for $1.3bn in December 2018. Prior to his leadership experience in the HR industry, Mark worked as a consultant and investment banker. He is also an active member of Young Presidents’ Association.
