Ashley Ragan (Communication ’12), manager of global creative marketing for Netflix’s titles, provided the welcome on behalf of the company.

Matthew Winston Jr. (Marketing Management ’90), Virginia Tech’s senior associate vice president for alumni relations, then introduced a panel of alumni speakers, including actress Michelle Krusiec (Theatre Arts ’95); television producer Adam Abramson (English ’06); music producer David Silberstein (Marketing Management ’10); and entrepreneur Tom Bagamane (Communication and Political Science ’83).
