From the yearly archives: 2010

One of our fellow Dekes, David Markowitz ’93, was recently featured in a WSJ Law Blog entry following his recent career move to Goldman Sachs.

At Goldman he will be a senior member of the litigation and regulatory proceedings group, which works on a broad variety of matters, said a spokesman for Goldman. “We are pleased that Mr. Markowitz is joining the company,” he said.

Markowitz served as the head of the investor protection bureau for New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, a powerful unit that launched probes and brought cases on Wall Street’s actions in the auction-rate securities market, the credit default swap market, the subprime mortgage market, and executive compensation during the height of the financial crisis.

Thank you to Lafayette AISB Co-Chair Bill Messick ’68 from DU for forwarding this article.

 

Steven Rosen (’02) married his fiance Abigail Scandlen on Saturday October 23, 2010 at the Lake Mohawk Country Club in Sparta, NJ. The wedding was attended by many fellow dekes including Peter Carlson (’02), Michael Gentile (’01), Jared Harvey (’02), Lance Lacoff (’02), Scott Reynolds (’02), Dominic Wade (’99), and Jason Zomick (’02). Mrs. Rosen was kind enough to bring a DKE flag to pose with to capture the moment.

 

Brother Paul McCurdy was recently elected to a five year term on Lafayette College’s Board of Trustees. He recently completed a two term as Lafayette Alumni Association President and previously served as President of the Rho House Association. Paul is also a member of Lafayette’s Greek Life Working Group. Lafayette’s announcement in the summer magazine can be found here.

We wish Paul the best and hope his busy schedule will still allow him to make an appearance at our 155th anniversary this Homecoming!

 

Since 2007, we’ve relied on Lafayette’s mailing list to communicate with our members. We recently learned that recent graduates are required to identify themselves as Dekes rather than the school making this association for you. As a result, you probably haven’t been receiving the Rho News or associated mailings unless you’ve registered with Lafayette.

Please take the time to identify yourself as a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon living group in the drop down box under Miscellaneous at the bottom of the edit profile page.

We’re working with the college to improve their information system.

 

There are two more job openings posted in this thread for a DBA and an Environmental Scientist. Alumni, please post other openings in that thread. Don’t forget to register and then create a thread requesting access to the private section of the forum. This keeps spam down and ensures only our members have access to the private section of the discussion forums. As always, if you have any questions please contact one of the officers with any questions.

 

Our very own Fletcher Thomson ’98 recently won the Largest jury verdict in CT history for a trade secret case.

The case was also profiled on the Lafayette website with the requisite reference to livestock, albeit unrelated to his victory in court.

Fletch, who previously participated in the DKE Speakers Bureau, is planning on returning to campus on October 15 ahead of Homecoming weekend to discuss his experiences. What a great way to kickoff the 155th anniversary!

 

Several alumni have requested a way to post job opportunities for recent DKE graduates. We created a thread for this on our private forums . You’ll need to register to receive access. Make sure you answer the anti-spam question at the very bottom of the registration page. The question is “What fraternity are you a member of?” Hopefully everyone remembers that much.

 

Following Brother Steinbrenner’s recent passing, the New York Times published some of his college correspondence to a woman he courted. Notice the personalized DKE letterhead.

 

Our host is migrating some of our services. In the process, they neglected to migrate our mailing lists. We’ve opened a support ticket. In the meantime, no mailing lists for rhodke.org are functional. We apologize for the inconvenience. No FP for fungroup.

Update:Mailing lists have been restored.

 

We’re pleased to announce that we concluded lease renegotiations with Lafayette College for the DKE House. I’d like to thank Peter Carlson, our Treasurer, for working closely with Lafayette’s VP of Business Affairs Mitch Wein to accomplish this new arrangement. We created a new model at Lafayette College that poises us for success.

Check the upcoming Rho News for additional details or contact us with any questions.
