How Well Do You Know Your Board Members?

FaceBook  Twitter

Who are these guys? Zach? Josh? Kevin? Matthew, Ryan and Owen? This is your Beta Gamma Corporation of Phi Kappa Theta. While this isn’t a new board — they have been in place since October 2012 — they are often working behind the scenes. On a daily basis, they are advising the chapter officers, managing finances, ensuring the upkeep of the property, scheduling events and maintaining Beta Gamma’s position as a competitive option for Penn State men.

Over the next few months, through our print and e-mail communications, we will be introducing you to our board members. Now is your chance to get to know them. Feel free to e-mail them with your ideas and comments about the chapter as we near the conclusion of another academic year.

 

Zachary Meli ’10, President

A resident of Hoboken, N.J., Zach is the manager of contracts and pricing for Stryker. Stryker is a leader in medical technology including reconstructive, medical/surgical and neurotechnology/spine products.

Currently, Zach works for the Othopaedics Group, supporting the national account teams, administering all contracts and pricing agreements, and providing pricing analytical tools to the sales and management teams.

As president of the Beta Gamma Corporation, Zach works with other board members to advise on areas for improvement, raise funds to support the active chapter and provide a path to success for the brotherhood — both while they are in college and beyond.

“The chapter has improved significantly over the last several years. They have begun to focus on additional areas for improvement including educational programming, community service and philanthropy. Most recently, they raised their largest THON gift in the last 10 years. I see them striving to be a chapter of excellence in 2015.” Zach can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

Josh Angert ’11, Secretary

Josh, our current secretary and resident of Chevy Chase, Md., is currently a senior advisor of Co-Op Services for Vendor Centric. Vendor Centric is managed services company that specializes in helping national trade associations design, build and manage group purchasing cooperatives. In his role, Josh focuses on analysis, finance and project management.

In his capacity as secretary of the Beta Gamma Corporation, Josh is very involved in managing the alumni communications program. He coordinates both alumni and undergraduate executive board meetings and provides support and advice to the actives whenever needed.

“Over the last few years, we’ve seen a large increase in the number of brothers. I know that the undergraduates are more concerned with quality over quantity, and they have a great group of active brothers. Respect for the house seems to be much higher recently, and there is increased focus on philanthropy and community service. I’m very pleased with the direction the chapter is going, and I’m happy to serve on the alumni executive board to support them.” Josh can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots.
