Last month, Verdun Perry, Blackstone Senior Managing Director and Co-Head of Strategic Partners, served as Honorary Co-Chair of the 2017 NBMBAA Annual Conference & Exposition in Philadelphia.
He gave remarks during the CEO Luncheon, participated in the conference’s Private Equity panel, and announced the finalists of the Scale-Up Pitch Challenge for entrepreneurs.
“I have been attending the National Black MBA Association Conference and Exposition for nearly 20 years and have found it to be a nurturer of diverse talent and successful leaders, and one of the premier events during which companies from all over the world can find and recruit exceptional students and professionals of diverse backgrounds. The NBMBAA Conference has become a must-attend event for entrepreneurs, students and seasoned professionals alike, who come for the exclusive networking opportunities and invaluable learning opportunities.”
The National Black MBA Association is a non-profit organization partnering with professionals, corporations and universities to support the African American community through various levels of engagement.
