Robbin Lee, conference coordinator, engaged with members of the Friends contingent throughout the three-day conference, noting, “There was an amazing sense of community among Friends School alums and they helped me to learn that it's this sense of giving back that has been instilled in them since their days at Friends. I think that's awesome.” Among those who represented Friends were: Jason Berman ’02, VP of Mandalay Pictures, Rob Berman ’88, Emmy Award winning music director, Broadway and Encores!, Phil McIntyre ’89, SVP Marketing & Business Development, SmithGeiger, LLC, Daryn Nakhuda ’94, CEO/founder, Mighty Ai, Steve Rosenberg ’91, Sr. Director of Operations and Production, HLN – CNN, Alex Salkever ’87, author/ technology consultant/speaker, Jon Sherman ’89, founder/owner/creative director, Flavor Paper, Matthew Sherman ’99, CEO/founder, Oneness Projects, Warner Siebert ’01 SVP, Market Adoption, SYSCO Labs, Shanna Tellerman ’99, CEO/founder, Modsy.
