Alumni Beat 7 – Long Phan SVMP ’05


Long Phan is a member of the SVMP Class of 2005 and is currently an Analyst at Cascade Investment.  Since graduating from The University of Washington, Long has recruited and mentored ten SVMP alumni and looks forward to helping recruit this year’s class.  His reason for getting involved with the SVMP Alumni Association is to continue to help recruit and discover ways to share his SVMP experience with others.


Remaining involved has allowed Long to meet and reconnect with SVMP alumni from around the country and the world.  The highlight of Long’s SVMP experience was the opportunity to meet his fellow classmates, who Long describes as,  “…some of the most inspiring, hardworking, and down-to-earth people I know.”  Long believes Harvard Business School does a great job selecting the participants because of their similar qualities of determination and ambition. “SVMP is a powerful global network, and I am happy to be part of the SVMP family,” he said.


Long’s biggest initiative is the creation of the SVMP Alumni Association’s first alumni database, encompassing 30 years worth of information.  He is hopeful that this will be a powerful resource to connect alumni, plan alumni events, and encourage new initiatives.
