The eighth-annual Douglas Maine Wall Street Day was held Oct. 16 and featured a virtual panel of six Temple University alumni who are leaders in the financial industry.
Wall Street Day was established by Douglas L. Maine, KLN ’71, a senior advisor at Brown Brothers Harriman. Through Wall Street Day, students learn about the day-to-day activities of financial industry professionals. During the three-hour event, students asked questions and heard first-hand accounts of challenges and victories in the professional arena.
“The experience allows our students to ask questions, network and open doors for their future success,” says Cindy Axelrod, director of the Financial Planning programs and the Owl Fund. “It enriches their collegiate careers and demonstrates the value of their Temple education.”
This year’s event included Maine and
- Alan Cohen, CLA ’72, Advisor to SEC and Global Head of Compliance, Goldman Sachs.
- Kim Cross, Fox ’88, Managing Director, Morgan Stanley Investment Management.
- Jonathan Shelon, Fox ’94, Chief Operating Officer, Kran Fund Advisors.
- Jerry Solomon, CLA ’85, Fixed Income Portfolio Manager, Capital Group.

“Through Wall Street Day, we are enriching the journey of our students and supporting their transformation into leaders in the financial industry,” says Dean Ronald Anderson. “Through the lessons our alumni have already learned, we are expediting our students’ paths to success.”
