Ross was the telecommunications and media analyst for the AIM Equity Fund. Ross will point out that all of his additions to the AIM Fund over the past two years have generated positive returns. His best selection was Syniverse Technologies (NYSE: SVR), which was recently acquired by The Caryle Group providing the AIM Fund with a 90%+ return.
During the past two summers Ross had internships in corporate finance with Johnson Diversey (Racine, WI) and in corporate and investment banking with BNP-Paribas (Chicago, IL).
"Ross will be missed in the AIM Room as he was always a positve person. I rarely saw Ross get down on himself; however, maybe all those years of missing 6 foot putts toughened him up mentally," Dr. Krause joked. "Seriously though, I can't say enough good things about him. Ross rarely missed a class and was always an active participant in our classroom discussions. He, like the other December graduates, will be missed on campus. We all wish him the very best!"
