Story posted March 15, 1999


March 4, 1999, BRUNSWICK, Maine -- The sixth of the 1998-99 Bowdoin Business Breakfasts, titled "CEO as Investor: Planning for Strategic Growth," will be held at 7:30 a.m. March 9 in Daggett Lounge, Wentworth Hall. The featured speaker will be John F. McQuillan Jr., founder of Triumvirate Environmental, the fastest-growing privately held hazardous waste disposal company in New England.

McQuillan graduated from Bowdoin with a degree in biochemistry in May 1987. After only eight weeks of employment with Clean Harbors of Natick, Mass., he set out to establish his own environmental protection company, founding Triumvirate Environmental in 1988 with virtually no financial backing, relying on meager savings and a credit card.

Among the company's clients are the region's top hospitals, universities, colleges, laboratories and manufacturers, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University Medical School, New England Deaconess Hospital and Massachusetts Water Resource and Turnpike authorities.

The cost for the breakfast is $8.50 for the public and $4.25 for faculty and staff. Payment to "Bowdoin College," required to hold a reservation, should be sent no later than Tuesday, March 2, to Lynn Ensign, Donor Relations Office, 85 Federal St., Brunswick, Maine 04011.

Seating in Daggett Lounge is limited to 160, first come, first seated. Overflow seating is available where the speaker may be viewed on screen. Breakfast is served at 7:30 a.m., and the speaker will begin at 8 a.m. Parking near Coles Tower is limited.
