Alumni Tale: Samuel McGowen ’08

What did you study at UNH?

Finance

What were you doing 1 year out of college?

I was living in Boston, MA working for State Street Bank as a fund accountant.

What were you doing 5 years out of college?

I had moved to Denver, CO and began working as a portfolio investment consultant (aka external wholesaler) for a company called Federated Investors.

What are you doing now?

I still live in Denver, CO and work with the asset management company Federated Investors.

How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

UNH taught me the value of relationships and to never burn a bridge. You never know who will be able to help you and who you can help in return.

Why do you believe in UNH?

UNH takes care of its own— that being the students, alumni and our community. The network from UNH got me to the career field I am in today. This has always been my dream and UNH helped me achieve it.
