Now a rising junior, Munn knew it would be smart to take the summer and intern to gain experience. After two years at Siena, he has cumulated a 3.85 grade point average in Finance and found himself on the MAAC All-Academic team for his hard work in the classroom. Munn began his internship with Riley, Nichols & Munn, an independent financial planning and investment firm based out of Rochester, New York, at the beginning of the summer. As the name suggests, Munn is a younger generation of the firm’s partners and noted how his contributions were valued as helpful and insightful. Munn’s older brother Michael is a Financial Consultant for Riley, Nichols & Munn.
“Ultimately, this experience has taught me that it is never too early to start working towards financial independence,” Munn noted. “Each meeting I had with clients further opened my eyes to the benefits of seeking financial planning advice. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to contribute my ideas and use what I have learned in my classes and on the field at Siena College to make a difference in the real world. All in all, effort and persistence are essential in order to receive desired results for the classroom, the lacrosse field, and the world of finance.”
“Eric is fortunate to have a built-in business network established through his family. Were that not the case, though, his tremendous work ethic and GPA would certainly have opened other ‘family’ doors, be it through Siena lacrosse network or elsewhere,” suggested Lori Jancik, Director of Student Athlete Engagement.
