Josh Lamers ’10 is a sell-side analyst at William Blair & Company. His position allows him to sit at the hub of numerous capital market participants, including buy-side investment managers, hedge funds, investment bankers, syndicate teams, private equity, venture capital, and more.

Mr. Lamers was an active participant in the Mock Trial Team, the Investment Club, the Phi Alpha Delta (pre-law fraternity), and other Greek organizations at Carthage. He believes his club involvement gave him the skills needed to present research reports and financial models to clients.
