Career Journeys: Thomas S. Bozzuto ’68

CareerJourneys-final
Career Journeys, a limited-run podcast from the Herald and the Salisbury Center for Career, Professional and Experiential Education, is designed to help introduce parents, students, alums, and prospective students to the wealth of opportunities and pathways that Hobart and William Smith alumni and alumnae have taken following their graduation. The show is produced and hosted by Alex Kerai ’19 in conjunction with the Herald and the Salisbury Center. It is recorded in the WEOS (NPR) studio on campus and includes live in-studio and over the phone interviews.

This week our guest is Thomas S. Buzzoto ’68 L.H.D. ’18 in the studio. Bozzuto graduated from HWS with a degree in English and was a Theta Delta Chi brother, Druid, football player, member of Hobart Student Association and Little Theatre, worked at Saga, and was president of the student body. After graduation, Bozzuto served in Vietnam before earning a graduate degree from Syracuse University. During a career that has spanned over 45-years, Bozzuto has overseen and been responsible for the creation of more than 50,000 homes and apartments. In 1988, Bozzuto established The Bozzuto Group of companies with his partners, John Slidell, Rick Mostyn, and the late Bernie Lubcher. Today, he serves as the Chairman of the group. Bozzuto has remained heavily involved in the Colleges: his donations have funded the Bozzuto Boathouse on campus and the Bozzuto Center for Entrepreneurship downtown; his support of the First-Generation Initiative has led to scholarship opportunities for students; and he has served on the Hobart and William Smith Colleges Board of Trustees since 1999 and has been the Chairman since 2016.

We are very excited to have Tom on this episode of Career Journeys!
