Gilman Alums Share Careers, Advice with Upper School Business Club

Written by Peter Shkolnik '24, Co-President, Gilman Business Club

On our recent field trip to Brown Advisory, members of Gilman's Business Club were warmly welcomed by Joey Cahalan '11, an associate at the firm, who gave us a quick and insightful tour of the spectacular Fells Point office. However the highlight of the field took place in the conference room, where we had the privilege of joining Gilman graduates, John Bond '94, an equity research analyst, Victor Abiamiri '03 and Matt Gilner P'25, portfolio managers, as well as Rollie Beatty '18 and Austin Hudson '17, portfolio analysts.

Each graduate shared their career journeys, speaking passionately about the experiences that led them to Brown Advisory. Mr. Abiamiri especially inspired students by sharing the late and unusual start he had to his career in finance after playing in the NFL for several seasons, demonstrating that with determination, one can accomplish anything. Following their introductions, a lively discussion ensued in which students asked about day-to-day responsibilities, challenges that arise in the industry and how to overcome them, advice for those who aspire to pursue similar career paths, and much more.

Interacting with successful Gilman alumni at a prestigious firm was a great way to wrap up the club's activities for the year, providing us with a valuable glimpse into the world of investment management and leaving us with a deep appreciation for the field.
