Local Hilbert alumni were given the opportunity to meet and greet with their fellow Ingram Micro co-workers at Brioso, a recently opened restaurant in Williamsville on Thursday, February 13. Alumni Board G.O.L.D Representative Mike Shriver ‘11, was shocked recently as he began randomly meeting others at his work place that also attended Hilbert.
“It really is a small world!” Mike said. “I sent out an email blast asking anyone who knew of other Ingram/Hilbert Alumni and the chain quickly began to grow.”
This event made it possible for Ingram Micro and Hilbert Alumni of all ages to connect with others they may have passed in the hallway never knowing how much they had in common.
“These types of events are best practices for alumni associations and we are looking forward to taking this model to other companies that employ Hilbert grads,” said Gregg Fort, Vice President for Institutional Advancement. “I would like to thank Mike Shriver of Ingram Micro for all his help in making this first alumni corporate event a success.”
