Exploration of careers pursed by college graduates and discussion of associated benefits and challenges. Topics include - the nature of the careers pursued; the opportunities that currently exist for graduates in these fields; how best to prepare for possible employment in these fields; and what is it the presenters wish someone had told them when they were in college.
Bruce Campbell. Practiced law for 38 years at the law firm of Perkins Coie, which is based in Seattle. Was the head of a 70-lawyer practice group that specialized in product liability litigation. Litigated disputes throughout the world, typically arising out of commercial airplane accidents.
Bob Campbell. Bob practiced law in Seattle for twelve years, specializing in municipal finance, energy law and healthcare law. He then joined Lehman Brothers as an investment banker and managed its western region public finance activities for approximately twenty-five years. In that capacity, he structured a wide variety of financings for state and local entities throughout the region and country. Among the projects Bob financed were the new Denver Airport, hydroelectric and wind projects throughout the Northwest, large and small infrastructure facilities, including highways in Montana, university capital projects, hospitals, and housing projects. The financing techniques Bob used in funding those projects included complex financial calculations and occasionally derivatives. For ten years, Bob also served as a director and executive committee member of Pogo Producing Company, a NYSE traded company engaged in oil and gas exploration and production. Bob received his BA degree (Economics) and JD degree from the University of Washington.
Diana Tremaine. Diana is an artist who creates oil paintings that explore the blurred edge between representation and abstraction. Growing up in New York City with frequent visits to both the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Diana combines her preference for a contemporary aesthetic with her love of technical mastery and drawing. Her work is often autobiographical, with a focus on family, children at play, and the natural world she has experienced while living in the Gallatin Valley. Diana’s work has been the subject of ten solo exhibitions in New York, California and Montana and more than forty two-person or group exhibitions across the country. Most recently, Diana was commissioned to paint retiring champion racehorse Lady Eli, a Breeder’s Cup winner, as a gift to the then-owner. Diana’s work can always be seen on display locally at the Gallatin River Galley and the Yellowstone Art Museum, and nationally at the Andra Norris Gallery in Burlingame, California and Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky. Diana received her BA degree (Fine Arts, Painting) from the University of California at Los Angeles.
Jack Anderson. Jack, a Montana native, is co-founder and chairman of Hornall Anderson, a globally recognized brand consultancy with offices in Seattle and New York. Hornall Anderson designs how brands and people come together. For almost four decades, Hornall Anderson has used design to deliver business outcomes by creating human-centered experiences which inform, create meaning and persuade. From consumer packaging and brand identity to environmental interactive installations and innovation centers, Hornall Anderson has earned a reputation working with world-class organizations such as Starbucks, Alaska Airlines, General Mills, the NBA, and Microsoft – to name a few. Jack and his firm have been responsible for “refreshing” products and architecture into iconic brands that touch consumers at every level. Howard Shultz, chairman of Starbucks, has praised Jack’s design skill as being “tremendously creative and at the same time pragmatic and disciplined about process.” Jack received his BA (Professional Design) and an Honorary Doctorate from Montana State University and consults with the College of Arts and Architectural Advisory Board.
