Book of Lists mentions alumni leaders

Over 700 business leaders attended Silicon Valley Business Journal’s second annual event Mission Gardens for food and refreshments.

The Silicon Valley Business Journal held its Book of Lists party for the second straight year in Mission Gardens on July 24.

More than 700 leaders from a wide array of businesses came to Mission Gardens for food and refreshments, and to see the unveiling of the annual directory, which this year included a “Movers and Shakers” section that included SCU alumni.

Of the 28 leaders featured in the newspaper supplement, six are former Broncos: Gary Filizetti ’67, MBA ’69; Charles E. Seufferlein ’76; Mark Ferrari ’76; David Ferrari ’78; Julie Jarvis Ferrari ’80; and Linda Williams ’76.

The Book of Lists notes that SCU is the fourth largest university in Silicon Valley and the 14th largest private-sector employer in the region. The Golden Circle Theatre Party was listed among the largest fund-raising events, and the de Saisset Museum was again listed among the top 25 tourist attractions in Silicon Valley.
