Hartford, Connecticut, May 25, 2017 – Thomas P. Joyce, who, as president and CEO of Danaher Corporation, leads his company’s $17 billion global, multi-industry portfolio of businesses, was the featured speaker at this year’s Bradley, Foster & Sargent luncheon May 10 at the Hartford Club.

The annual lecture, now in its eighth year, is hosted by Bradley, Foster & Sargent (BFS), a Hartford-based investment advisory firm that offers internships to students from Trinity College and the UConn School of Business. The internship program is a form of independent study, by which students augment classroom learning by working in a business organization.

A contingent of Trinity’s BFS interns joined the
gathering of more than 200 members of the local
business and finance community who attended Joyce’s talk, titled “How Strategy, Culture, and Purpose Drive Long-Term Performance.” Joyce’s wife, Claire Slaughter Joyce, 1986 Trinity College alumna, attended, as did Trinity College President Joanne Berger-Sweeney.
