We continue our 20th anniversary intern alum spotlights with Peter Rottenbucher, Marist ‘12.

Peter majored in History and Spanish and is a recent graduate of Marist’s Master in Business Administration program with a concentration in Ethical Leadership. He currently works as a Director of Sales Operations for an international executive search firm.

Peter shares a meaningful memory from his time at HRVI:

"I was once tasked with trying to get the Hudson River Valley Review into various coffee shops, bookstores, and boutiques around town. Thinking back, it was very likely my first sales experience apart from selling candy bars for my elementary school trip. While the goal was to get visibility and maybe some revenue on consignment, what I learned was cold-calling, visiting perspective buyers, and handling rejection. These were skills that were tantamount to my experience in recruitment, which at its heart, is a sales job."

Read his full update here. This update, and all of the updates to be featured this year, will be linked to each alum's name on the Interns page of the website.
