WASHINGTON, DC - One of the Caribbean’s most respected sons has been singled out by a leading American university as one of its most accomplished graduates.
Howard University’s School of Business in Washington DC recently recognized St. Lucia-born Cecil St. Jules as one of its 40 most distinguished and accomplished graduates at the School’s 40th Anniversary celebration.
“I am humbled to receive such a lofty recognition by my alma mater,” said St. Jules, a managing director of BNY Mellon Broker Dealer Services.
St. Jules, who earned an MBA from Howard in 1987, saluted the distinguished business school for 40 years of educational excellence, and said he continues to honor the school for preparing him for a successful career in the banking field.
“Howard continues to be part of my life today even after graduating so long ago. The foundational values that were learnt at The Hilltop have continued to serve me well today,” he added.
St. Jules has since played a leadership role with the company, helping the Broker Dealer Services Division grow from being a small business unit into the dominant worldwide collateral management provider. His responsibilities vary from data security, customer charging to project planning and internal controls.
St. Jules is an active community volunteer and a member of several banking and risk management organizations. He is married and has one daughter.
Howard University is one of the country’s elite historically Black colleges, which marked the four decades of the establishment of its Business School at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington DC in October.
