Fellows Forum draws 1,000

Bayview PR was excited to be involved in the University of Tampa Fellows Forum, which drew 1,000 businesspeople Tuesday morning to the Straz Center to hear from three national-level business leaders.

Bayview president Kyle Parks chairs the UT Board of Fellows this year. The group’s Forum committee, led by Steve Murray of UBS Financial Services, raised a record $69,000 in corporate sponsorships for the event, which benefits UT’s Sykes College of Business.

That’s quite a figure in the current economy, reflecting how Tampa Bay’s business community has embraced the University of Tampa, which is thriving under the leadership of President Ron Vaughn.

A story on the Forum appeared in the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
