Susan Quisenberry , W ’65 and Principal at Quisenberry & Warren, Ltd., has served on the University of Richmond Robins School of Business’ Executive Advisory Council for the past ten years.  Prior to serving on the EAC, Quisenberry held a position on the Business Partnership Committee which planned and held several breakfast meetings featuring speakers from the business community during the academic year.  
Three years ago, Quisenberry became a mentor through the EAC’s Mentoring Program because of the impact that a mentor had on her career during her first year out of college.  
“I had a mentor during my first year or so in my career and found it to be extremely valuable.   My mentor and I still keep in touch,” she said.
Can you speak to the mission of the EAC or perhaps how your values align with its mission?    
The current University Strategic Plan speaks to the importance of the University connecting with the community within which it resides, and the EAC can play a vital role in that connection.
What do you find rewarding about being a mentor?   
It’s very rewarding to see firsthand the quality of Robins School of Business students and to be able to work with the next generation of business and community leaders.
What attracted you to your current position as Principal at Quisenberry & Warren, Ltd.? 
Prior to Quisenberry & Warren, I worked for an IT consulting firm which grew from eight employees to over 250 while I was there and which no longer exists due to a leveraged buyout.  Following that I was VP for Systems Development and CIO for two other companies   During that time, I discovered that I really wanted to return to consulting.
What makes you passionate about your work?  
I love the nature of consulting; being able to quickly and thoroughly learn about an organization so that I can provide solutions to their needs.   I have had the opportunity to learn about and influence a very wide range of organizations, both in the for-profit and the non-profit arenas.
What activities, groups or associations did you participate in at UR?   
Class officer and orientation counselor.
What is your favorite memory of the University of Richmond?  
There are too many to decide!
Quisenberry has also served on the University of Richmond’s Board of Trustees, and as President of the University of Richmond Alumni Association, President of the Westhampton College Alumni Association, and numerous committees including the latest Presidential Search Committee.   She is currently a Trustee Emerita.
