The Daily Pennsylvanian Alumni Association is pleased to announce its two newest Board members: Nick Plagge '01 and Julie Steinberg '09.
Before graduating in 2001, Plagge held positions as Design Editor and DailyPennsylvanian.com Editor, and sat on the DP Executive Board. He started his career with 4 years on Wall Street trading ETFs on the floor of the American Stock Exchange. After a brief west coast stint, he moved back to the east coast and a year of overseas consulting work in Abu Dhabi. He then returned to Philadelphia, where he helped establish, with his brother and cousin, a real estate investment operation with properties in south-, southwest-, and west-Philadelphia and in Germantown. In the fall of 2011, Nick led that same partnership to establish a center city-based stock trading operation in an effort to capitalize on Philly-based securities industry professionals seeking a trading platform and short- and medium term funding. Plagge's current projects also include a subscription-based real estate investment website servicing the probate investment community, and a business development role at his family's tour operator business. He is extremely excited to incorporate his varied entrepreneurial and finance-related career experiences in his role as a member of the DPAA Board of Directors. He currently lives in south Philly.
Steinberg is a 2009 College graduate. While at the DP, she served as minority affairs and graduate schools beat reporter, Spin opinion blogger and print columnist. She also worked as the film editor for 34th Street magazine. After graduating, she interned at The Wall Street Journal and was hired for its online financial website, FINS.com, as a reporter. She joined The Wall Street Journal's Money & Investing section as a reporter in August 2012, where she now covers private banking and wealth management.
They replace Steve Klitzman '66 and Justin Schechter '77, both of whom made important contributions to the DPAA Board over the past three and four years of service, respectively.
