HWS Trustee Tom Bozzuto '68 recently discussed his more than 40-year career in real estate as part of the "Lessons from Legends" series launched this fall by the University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business. The series provides students with the perspective of successful business leaders in Baltimore.
Bozzuto, chief executive officer of the Bozzuto Group, was interviewed by his son, Toby, and discussed his entry into the real estate field and provided advice to those looking to become developers and entrepreneurs in the field.
Since its founding in 1988, Bozzuto has led the Bozzuto Group, which builds, manages, and develops apartments, condominiums and single-family homes. He is the recipient of the Freddie Mac Builder of the Year award; has been awarded the Environmental Builder of the Year by the Maryland-National Capital Building Industry Association (MNCBIA); and has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Metropolitan Washington's Building Industries: the MNCBIA and the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association.
While at HWS, Bozzuto was a member of the football team, Little Theatre, the Hobart Student Association and the Druid Society. He worked in Saga and graduated with a B.A. in English. He also holds a master's degree in metropolitan studies from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. Bozzuto has served on the HWS Board of Trustees since 1999.
