This summer, Emma Diehl ’17 and Lauren Kogelmann ’18 have landed positions with the prestigious wealth management firm CIBC/Atlantic Trust in New York City. Under a leadership team that includes Atlantic Trust President Eric B. Propper ’80, the company manages $30.2 billion in assets for individuals, foundations and endowments.
Kogelmann, an economics major and mathematics minor, began an internship with the CIBC division of the company in late May. She is assisting in three areas within the corporate banking division: project finance, diversified industries, and utilities. “I am working with financial statements from many different companies,” she says.
Kogelmann was drawn to CIBC/Atlantic Trust after working with the Salisbury Center for Career, Professional and Experiential Education, which advised her of the opportunity while she was studying abroad in Scotland. “CIBC was appealing to me because of their core values of trust, teamwork and accountability,” she says.
Diehl, who graduated magna cum laude in economics, has begun her professional career as a client services associate. Her responsibilities include managing client accounts and organizing and allocating investment opportunities within client portfolios.
Diehl also worked with the Salisbury Center to locate and apply for her position. She credits two members of the HWS community with providing support to her: Associate Professor of Classics James Capreedy, who taught her to “maintain an open mind and put your heart into your work,” and William Smith Soccer Head Coach Aliceann Wilber P’12.
“Aliceann encouraged me to constantly tackle and exceed limits that I have set for myself, and has remained my biggest supporter at HWS over the past four years,” Diehl says.
Both Diehl and Kogelmann are members of the William Smith soccer team. Diehl earned NSCAA First Team All-America honors this year. She was tabbed the D3soccer.com, the Liberty League and the ECAC North Defensive Player of the Year. Diehl also collected all-conference, all-region and ECAC All-Star first team accolades. She was honored for her academics with CoSIDA Academic second team All-American and NSCAA Scholar All-American honors. In her four year Heron soccer career, she played in 87 matches, starting every one. Diehl logged six goals and 12 assists for 24 career points. She guided William Smith to 67 shutouts in her four years on the team.
A 2016 All-Liberty League second team pick, Kogelmann started all 22 games this fall. She logged a career-high12 points on four goals and four assists. Kogelmann was voted to the CoSIDA Academic All-American second team for her excellence on the field as well as in the classroom. She has played in 63 games in her three years on the Heron soccer team, registering 16 points on five goals and six assists.
