Berkeley-Haas Alumni Network

Chapter of the Year 2015

Chapter-of-the-YearThe Berkeley-Haas Alumni Network’s New York City Chapter is a valued and strategic partner in raising the Berkeley-Haas and UC Berkeley flags in the Tri-state area.  They are thoughtfully organized with a diverse and committed group of 30+ alumni volunteers representing all degree programs.  They continually deliver industry and affinity programming to the more than 1,800 alumni, hosting up to one event per month and planning their calendar 3-months in advance. They are also active and engaged partners with UC Berkeley and other UC alumni communities in the region. We particularly want to applaud the efforts of longstanding co-president Chris Nuttall, FTMBA 02, whose leadership and steadfast support in relaunching the chapter and collaborating extensively and strategically with Haas’ Development & Alumni Relations has earned the group the 2015 Chapter of the Year honor.  The award was bestowed on campus on Friday, October 2 by Dean Rich Lyons.  Both co-presidents Chris Nuttall, FTMBA 02, and Neil Seth, MFE 05, were onsite to accept the honor.


Our ambition is to enhance and improve connections between our community of 1,500+ Berkeley-Haas alums in the Tri-state area (expanding to the wider community of UC Berkeley alums interested in business).
