|AIM Alumni: Mike Carlson and Katie Koutnik|
2008 AIM alumnus, Mike Carlson, an Investment Analyst at Cascade Investment in Seattle, Washington, visited the AIM program on Monday, November 29. He met with the AIM students in the Class of 2011 during their class meeting - and then he talked informally with the newest AIM students in the Class of 2012.
Dr. David Krause, AIM program director said, "It was great to see Mike again. Having him in the classroom was a treat for the students since he is able to talk about investments in terms the students can relate. He has gained some valuable experience at Cascade Investment and I look forward to watching Mike's career develop. Mike is making steady progress towards his CFA charter and I expect him to be continue to prosper in the investment industry."
Mike played on the Marquette men's soccer team during the 2004-2007 seasons. He is from Glendale, Wisconsin and attended Nicolet High School. Dr. Krause added, "I know it was a treat for Mike to make it back to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving. It was great to see him again and I hope we continue to place more Marquette students in Seattle with Cascade."
