The 2021 installment of Arrows Connect Career Night took a virtual twist this year and made the most of it. On Tuesday, January 5, an outstanding panel of five alumni offered career advice to an audience of college aged St. Sebastian’s alumni. While the night did not offer the benefit of meeting mentors in person, it did allow attendees and presenters from across the US to participate. Alumni logged in from Colorado, Florida, Virginia, and Wyoming to name a few.
Alex Cook ’91, Chair of the Alumni Board Professional Networking Committee, moderated the event. Rob Brooks ’08, Tucker Elcock ’07, Marlon Matthews ’14, Brendan Quinn ’09, and Luke Sullivan ’09 all shared guiding principles with their younger Arrows brothers. Rob Brooks’ career at Livongo was inspired by living with Type 1 Diabetes. He encouraged alumni to pursue passion in their careers, which led him to this wearable tech diabetes solution company. Tucker Elcock joined Teneo in its early days and encouraged alumni to stay informed and find their own voice to succeed at the next level. Marlon Matthews is pursuing his career path from two different ends of the scale, established incumbent and startup at Cytiva (formerly GE Healthcare Life Sciences) and his own startup, Stretch Global. Brendan Quinn honed his skills at PwC and now studies complex M&A transactions for Connor Group. Luke Sullivan emphasized the importance of critical thinking and learning from every experience that has led him down the legal path to arrive at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
