Yesterday MicroTech Founder, President & CEO Tony Jimenez was the inaugural guest speaker at the Washington, D.C. Notre Dame Alumni Group’s quarterly series called “How to Make it in America.”
The series' organizers bring in CEOs to give their perspective on business and life topics that are important to the Alumni. Their first event of the series was held at the Booz Allen Hamilton Building in D.C.
“It was an honor to be invited as their first guest speaker. I enjoyed meeting the alumni and sharing some life lessons and my business insights with such a great group of young professionals,” said Jimenez.
With seventy percent of the University’s freshmen at the pinnacle of their individual high school graduating classes, the Notre Dame Alumni group is made up of a very selective and educated group of eager and determined adults.
Jimenez shared his journey from Army Private to self-made CEO to the group of around 50 Fighting Irish. He talked about what he thinks are important components of becoming a successful entrepreneur, the challenges that are facing the U.S. economy, and his company's role as a Federal contractor. He also encouraged the Alumni to “love what you do, and do what you love.”
MicroTech executives Dr. Roger Channing, CTO & SVP of Datacenter Solutions, and Rampi Venkat, VP of Consulting Services, joined Jimenez at the event.
