Featured Alumna: Clare McGrory
Clare McGrory, '97 VSB, '08 MBA is chief financial officer of Atairos, a strategic investment firm. While preparing her for a successful career, VSB gave her opportunities for long-lasting memories, too. "The best memory is my summer abroad at University College Galway, which was done through the Villanova Irish Studies Program. The experience of joining a group of strangers to go to a foreign country, learning about their culture and customs, and developing what were to become lifelong friendships is what made it amazing," she recalls.
