"Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) and First Tennessee Bank are sponsoring a networking event featuring Isaac Green, founder and CEO of Piedmont Investment Advisors, as the keynote speaker on Thursday, February 12, from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. in the Anderson Conference Center on the university campus.
Green is responsible for the strategic direction of Piedmont Investment Advisors and is also the co-portfolio manager for the firm’s flagship Strategic Core large cap equity product. Prior to founding Piedmont in 2000, he was executive vice president and managing director of Loomis Sayles’ Value Equipment Management Division with responsibility for more than $10 billion in assets.
Throughout the course of his investment career, Green has been a guest on television programs such as CNBC and Bloomberg Television, and most recently UNC-TV’s North Carolina People. He has also been featured in several investment publications, including Institutional Investor, Pensions & Investments, Triangle Business Journal and Black Enterprise. In 2010, Green was honored with the Maynard Holbrook Jackson, Jr. Award, an award given annually by the National Association of Securities Professionals to the financial services industry professional who best exemplifies entrepreneurial achievement, community service and high moral standards.
The event, which is free and open to the public, also will provide networking opportunities with finance and business professionals who will provide information on career paths and what students can do now to be successful after college."
