Eric FlynnWe would like you to meet Eric Flynn ’02, an MPAc alum from Townsend, Montana, who is now a Principal at Bitterroot Capital Advisors, LLC in Bozeman, Montana.

Why MSU? "I had opportunities to attend the Air Force Academy, Stanford, and MSU. MSU offered the best scholarships, community, and education options.  The overall value for the quality of the education made it an easy decision."

He found that the willingness of the faculty to be available and assist in career planning/decisions were most helpful as he was debating a few potential paths and he also received some great advice and career placement from relationships with the faculty. Also, both the Finance Club and Accounting Club provided a great network that he only realized after he had left MSU

Eric is a partner in a Registered Investment Advisory firm.  They handle all financial and investment operations for very large clients all over the world.

What are some ways you have been able to give back to the community and MSU? "I have contributed back to Montana in many ways. Our firm could be located anywhere in the world, but we chose Bozeman and have hired many MSU grads (and a few from UM too).  Also, I have tried to give back to MSU wherever possible by guest lecturing, attending finance club events, being on the Dean’s Advisory Council, and organizing local CFA Society events to bring finance professionals and students together. "

When asked about her experience with our program, he says, “Looking back, completing the MPAc program was one of the best decisions I made in my life."
