Welcome Renee Fong to Alumni Affairs
I am very pleased to announce that Renee Fong started on November 17th as assistant director, West Coast, for the Johnson School Alumni Affairs and Development team. Renee brings with her a wealth of experience in event management and client relationships: Her former roles include catering sales manager at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco, director of hospitality sales for IMG, and event director for Jazz at Lincoln Center. Renee will be responsible for connecting with over 1,600 Johnson School alumni located from San Diego to Vancouver on the West Coast, and ramping up our alumni outreach and presence in this increasingly important market for the Johnson School. Renee is based in the Bay Area, where the majority of our West Coast alumni live, but will frequently be on the road interacting with alumni in other areas.

Renee is a 2001 graduate of the Cornell Hotel School and comes from a long line of Cornell graduates. She is fluent in Portuguese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Shanghainese, and Spanish, so I believe we will be covered on most fronts with any language barriers. Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Renee!

All of your friends in Alumni Affairs wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and thank you for all that you do for the Johnson School.
