During the recent PEI CFOs & COOs Forum, several PECFOA members came together to pay tribute to Marc Unger, CFO of Harvest Partners and New York PECFOA board member who passed away in December. The group, led by Dina Colombo of GreyLion Capital, shared some of their remembrances about Marc as a colleague, mentor, and friend. They also announced that over $100,000 has been raised to create a permanent scholarship in Marc’s name at his alma mater, Lehigh University. If you would like to contribute to the scholarship, information can be found at the Lehigh Crowdfunding website or by clicking Marc Unger Scholarship. The video replay of the memorial tribute, with remembrances from Dina Colombo (GreyLion Capital), Greg Feig (CCMP), Elliot Attie (Trilantic), and Shant Mardirossian (Kohlberg & Co), can be watched by clicking Marc Unger Tribute.
