Patrick Murray

'02 VSB

CEO, STP Investment Services

Favorite class at VSB and why?

Macroeconomic Theory with Dr. DeFina. He was the best professor I had at Villanova because he did a tremendous job making a dry topic fascinating. I knew it was a great course because my head hurt from how much I had learned in an hour after each class! The course content is still very applicable to my day-to-day business career as CEO of STP Investment Services.

Most important thing you learned?

The importance of core values at work, at home, and in the community. Despite challenges that come our way, being able to reference those core values to guide decision-making is key.

Favorite Villanova memory?

Winning the intramural billiards title as a freshman with my good friend against two seniors who appeared invincible!
