Featured Alumni Alumni are impacting the design world, transferring their BAC experience into unique, professional careers. ALUMNI NEWS ] FEATURED ALUMNI Marc Pelletier '83 Marc Pelletier has developed a multifaceted career that has always been centered on design. "My rst encounter with design was as an apprentice with a builder on Martha's Vineyard," says Marc. " is mentor was a designer, painter and sculptor, who taught me to appreciate the concepts of light and shadow, and especially craft." Marc began his academics at the BAC in the early s and for a number of years to follow, studied and worked in a number of architectural rms in Boston. He was an Associate at CityDesign Collaborative when an oppor- tunity to manage the construction of an o ce park in suburban Boston presented itself. From that moment, a new yet related career was pursued. For several years, Marc worked in program and project management and has made the transition to marketing and business development, representing some of the region's nest construction rms. He is now a Vice President of Client Ser vices for A.J. Martini, Inc., directing business development and marketing for the rm's three o ces: Winchester, Massachusetts, Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Miami, Florida. "I have always felt that the BAC was the key to achieving a rewarding and extremely interesting career," says Marc. "I hope that I can help others who are starting in their development in the design profession through my continued work with the BAC." In his role as the Institutional Advancement Committee Co-Chair, Marc encourages others to make nancial contributions and enable this professional development. "Fundraising is vital to the continued success of the BAC," he says. "People who have some connection and appreciation for the mission of the College can help out in whatever manner they can; they just need to be asked." One day in , while meeting with fellow students at the BAC, a fellow female student who also worked at the BSA entered the room. Marc casually asked one of the other fellows who she was, and was told to " forget it, pal." Marc seized the challenge and in , he and Penny Carlhian were married. ey recently celebrat- ed their th anniversary, though in fact, it all started years ago at the BAC. Marc has always felt that the BAC was the key to achieving his rewarding and extremely interesting career...and marriage! CONSTRUCTION PRACTICE 42
