Fidelity Investments Welcomes UD Students For Networking Event

Fidelity Networking Attendees

Date Published: Oct. 27, 2016

“The University of Dallas must be doing something right,” said Chief Information Officer of Fidelity Personal Investing, Roger Stiles, MBA ’93, as he looked around the auditorium filled with students, faculty, staff and alumni at the firm’s Westlake branch. Fellow UD alumni employed at Fidelity nodded in agreement.

Fidelity’s 337-acre campus boasts walking and jogging trails, a full cafeteria, gym, fully stocked fishing pond and herd of longhorn steers. UD students toured the campus, learning from alumni about the 35 business units and imagining their own possible futures at Fidelity.

Designed to be a tour and networking opportunity, students had the opportunity to ask alumni for their industry insight and learn about their own experiences with the company.

As the top employer of UD alumni, Fidelity has maintained a strong relationship with UD for decades. It is the kind of company the university is proud to be involved with because they understand the importance of innovative benefits and support for their employees.

“It’s clear that Fidelity is a great company; several employees have been here 15 years, 25 years, 32 years. That kind of loyalty marks the caliber of a company and is a testament to the way Fidelity treats employees.” said Director of Corporate Relations Halley Netsch. “We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship and are proud to have so many alumni at a company as highly-regarded as Fidelity.”
