Mentor and Investment Advisor Larry Myny invests in Fanshawe College
Supporting a cause very close to his heart, Larry Myny made a personal commitment to the future success of Fanshawe College graduates in December 2010. His donation of $50,000 over five years was earmarked for the Alumni Mentoring for Success program.
"Mentors are important to career success because they share wisdom, connections, and advice that you just can't get anywhere else," says Larry Myny, who has been mentor to dozens of younger professionals in his field over the years, in his role as Vice President and Investment Advisor at CIBC Wood Gundy.
"I strongly believe that this mentoring program offers a critical point of success to new graduates – at a critical time in their career development. I hope with my support that more Fanshawe alumni who are already established in their careers and indeed as business leaders in London will consider becoming mentors to the next generation," added Larry.
Larry Myny leads by example because he uses his own time, insight, and resources to positively affect countless lives in the London community. His own professional career path has been focused in financial markets where he progressed from the position of commodity broker with Merrill Lynch to that of Vice President and Senior Financial Advisor with CIBC Wood Gundy.
In both his professional and personal philosophies, Larry upholds the adage, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
Fanshawe's Alumni Association has taken a lead role in mentorship not only in London, but across the country. Since establishing its mentoring program five years ago, more than a dozen other organizations have contacted Fanshawe to ask for advice in how to set up similar style mentoring programs at their institutions.
Fanshawe now operates a thriving mentoring program which guides students and graduates as they make the transition from school to work. With this important and generous donation from Larry Myny, the mentoring program is now expanding further, providing new opportunities for a greater number of the 130,000 alumni to join in as mentors and help out. Fanshawe is also welcoming any business leaders from London and area to assist as mentors, whether they graduated from Fanshawe or not.
