Six executives from Deloitte & Touche LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services firms, will toast their college alma mater and its current president on Thursday, April 5, in a 6:30 p.m. reception at the Stamford Marriott.

Robert Hansen '77, principal in the Stamford offices of Deloitte & Touche's Enterprise Risk Services (ERS) practice, heads the prestigious group of alumni that will celebrate the University at Albany and welcome President Karen R. Hitchcock. They will also receive thanks from Hitchcock for their recent generous gift to the University's School of Business.

"It is important for us be able to support and give back to the college that provided the foundation for our careers," said Hansen. "It is not only this sense of responsibility, but also it is a way of acknowledging the important role that the University at Albany fulfills today in providing our firm, and the business community at-large, with highly qualified and motivated employees."

The Stamford event, which includes 50 graduates and their spouses from the Southern Fairfield County region, is part of a nationwide tour by President Hitchcock to areas of the country where a number of UAlbany graduates reside.

Along with Hansen, UAlbany alumni and Deloitte & Touche partners Robert Diskin '76, James Ferrara '85, Robert Smolens '80, Robert Uhl '87, and George Warnock '79 are scheduled to attend and help President Hitchcock announce the firm's gift to the business school.

Deloitte & Touche provides assurance and advisory, tax, and management consulting services through nearly 30,000 people in more than 100 U.S. cities.
