East Boston Savings Bank’s Chairman, CEO and President, Richard J. Gavegnano, was honored to be invited as a guest speaker at Boston College’s “Lunch with an Entrepreneur” discussion, hosted at the college campus. There he met with various students, and participated in an interactive discussion, in which he shared his story about his journey as an entrepreneur, and engaged students in their interest in entrepreneurship.
“I consider myself to be an anomaly, and my story is one that I enjoy sharing with others, because it is one of true dedication and hard work, and those are the principles that I exemplify in everything that I do. I am more than honored to have the privilege to share the story of my successes and knowledge that I attained throughout my career, and have the ability to pass on certain values and real-life principles that these students can use as they continue to grow in their own careers and pursuit of their dreams,” said Chairman, CEO and President, Richard J. Gavegnano.
The lunch discussion was hosted by the Boston College Shea Center for Entrepreneurship. The Center’s mission is to integrate entrepreneurial thinking into the educational and formational experience of undergraduate and graduate students throughout the college.
