Scott A. Roberts, BUS AD '85

Scott Roberts is the president of Deerfield Capital Management, a company in Chicago that oversees more than $12 billion in assets. Before that, he was chief investment officer at Liberty Hampshire and several Zurich Insurance Company subsidiaries, including Scudder Kemper Investments where he was responsible for over $80 billion in assets.

In addition to his Marquette degree, Scott holds an M.B.A. in finance and investments from the University of Wisconsin where he currently serves on the board of the applied security analysis program.

Yet Scott brings so much more to his profession than a keen eye for good investments. "I am in a people business," he says. "I get to learn from and meet new people all the time and my work also allows me to guide people in a career in investments."

This same attentiveness to others is evident in Scott's volunteer activities. He serves on the boards of Catholic Charities of Chicago and the Nativity Jesuit Middle School and also is a member of the 1881 Society of Marquette's President's Council.

One of the lessons Scott says he learned at Marquette was to measure yourself by how you handle the bumps in the road of life. By this or any other definition, Scott would have to be judged a great success.
