On January 24, 2024, Hill spoke to a standing-room-only audience where he bridged the gap between academic affairs and industry knowledge, through his extensive experience in the regulatory field. Hill has served in the vice chairman role since Jan. 5, 2023. Previously, he worked at the FDIC from 2018 to 2022 as deputy to the chairman for policy, and before that as senior advisor to the chairman. In these roles, among other responsibilities, he oversaw and coordinated regulatory and policy initiatives at the agency, and advised the chairman on regulatory and policy matters.  

The Dean's Executive Forum continued to host engaging and experienced guest speakers as Anne Valentzas was welcomed to Fairfield Dolan on April 2, 2024. Valentzas explored modern marketing strategies and shared her experience in Mastercard's innovative campaigns, including the highly successful collaboration with the GRAMMYs and Sza.

Valentzas has been with Mastercard for 11+ years where she has held various roles in Consumer and B2B Marketing and as a Product Architect, where she helped deliver solutions to meet the unique needs of Co-brand partners. Before Mastercard, Anne managed marketing for De Beers, overseeing the iconic A Diamond is Forever campaign.
