Southern Utah University alumnus Garrett B. Gunderson will be speaking Thursday Sept. 20 at 11:00 am in the Starlight Room of the SUU campus. A book signing will immediately follow Gunderson's presentation.

Gunderson, who became a self-made millionaire by the age of 26, graduated with a Finance degree from Southern Utah University in 2002, and is now the owner of five successful companies.

He is also the acclaimed author of investment guidance for the masses with two books, “Curriculum for Wealth,” and his new book “Killing Sacred Cows.” His recent work challenges the social myths, fallacies, and misguided traditions about the world of personal finance, presenting a revolutionary perspective on prosperity. Gunderson attributes his success to his ability to help others prosper.

An ardent supporter of his alma mater, Gunderson is no stranger to speaking engagements for the SUU community. In the past, he’s been included in the Wells Fargo Business Executive Speaker Series on the SUU campus and at the grand opening of the School of Business’ Investment and Service-Learning Lab in September of 2006.

Selected as SUU’s outstanding alumnus in the spring of 2007, Gunderson has contributed both time and money to impact SUU. In addition to speaking engagements, Gunderson and his company Freedom Fast Track contributed money to help fund the Goo Goo Dolls concert as part of the school’s Inauguration celebration for President Michael T. Benson. Most notably though, was Gunderson’s generous donation to SUU that helped fund the new Investment and Service Learning Laboratory, which opened in September of 2006.

Gunderson has accomplished more in his first five years out of college than many could hope to accomplish in a lifetime. His insight into financial management and entrepreneurship drive many toward both personal and professional success.
