Niagara Bank Executive Launches Faces of AIC Lecture Series

SPRINGFIELD –American International College began its Faces of AIC lecture series on September 16 with presenter Jeremy Casey, Vice President of Small Business Banking at First Niagara Bank. The series is designed to expose the AIC community to diverse opinions, profound insights and lively discussion on a broad scope of issues. The College’s most dynamic and influential alumni and distinguished friends will promote student development by sharing their stories and becoming role models for current students.

Mr. Casey received his Undergraduate degree in Business & Marketing from Westfield State University and his MBA from AIC. At 29, he has built an impressive resume, has a passion for professional success, civic leadership, and community engagement. He currently serves as president of the Young Professionals Society of Greater Springfield, is a board member for The Rotary Club of Springfield, and is a member of the Young Professional Ad-hoc Committee for the Springfield City Council.

Mr. Casey’s mission in life is “to go to a place and leave it better than when I found it”. He encouraged students to find their passion in life and align that passion with their talents to find success and fulfillment in their career choices.

His advice to students: Network! The adage “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is true in today’s competitive job market. Mr. Casey’s overarching message was to network in person; network online through LinkedIn. It’s never too early to invest in your future. Start today.

The series continues on October 21 and November 18 in the Schwartz Campus Center and is open to AIC students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
