Vice President of Finance

filhoLuiz Ribeiro Filho

Pace University has provided me with so many wonderful opportunities. Being a part of Pace University’s football team has made me feel like a contributing member to our school community. After having major knee surgery, Pace was willing to work with me through my recovery, providing me with an opportunity to remain a team member.

As a member of the football team, I have been able to develop a range of important skills that will assist me in a multitude of areas throughout my life. In particular, football has taught me the importance of setting goals for myself, goals for a group of people, and proper time management and organizational skills. While in season, I have learned that timing is everything, and that proper time management is the key to success.

Coinciding with these skills, football has taught me the proper skills necessary for leadership. Football has provided me with a better understanding of teamwork, and the value of respecting, listening and incorporating other individuals’ ideas and opinions. When I joined the football team at Pace, I was a freshman, and thought it would be difficult to dedicate myself to my team and my schoolwork in an unfamiliar environment. I have and continue to give to my commitment to my team, achieve high academic standing and maintain relationships with many people on campus in my social life.

Alongside my leadership and football experience, I have a great understanding of the field of finance. I previously worked for a small hedge fund called Bedford Oak Advisors in Mt. Kisco, NY. While working there, I assisted in inputting trades and performed market research. I also monitored supply levels, managed orders and effectively communicated with clients, traders and advisors on a daily basis among other tasks. I am currently interning for a company called Argus Information and Advisory Services. My daily tasks include creating analytical reports and constructing spreadsheets for various banks. I also review reports for consistency and accuracy on a daily basis. My experience within the world of finance is continuously expanding and becoming the Vice President of Finance is a way I can assist the Pace community with my skill set.

I am extremely grateful for the opportunities that Pace has given me and I will continue to be a contributing member to our community. Pace has offered me astonishing opportunities and I hope to receive the chance to give back to my university community as Vice President of Finance of Pace University. The student body holds my biggest concern. Socializing with fellow students in the Pace community has allowed me to recognize the potential of what our school can become by aspiring to specific goals.
