Congratulations to Greg Chittim ’01 Th’02 '03 chosen by the Alumni Council to receive a 2014–15 Dartmouth Young Alumni Distinguished Service Award. This award was established in 1990, and recognizes breadth, depth, and length of volunteer involvement. Alumni are eligible the first 15 years after graduation. Chittim and three other honorees will receive their awards at the annual Alumni Awards Gala, which will be celebrated during the 209th meeting of the Dartmouth Alumni Council on October 24 in Hanover.

Life and career: Greg was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, helped reconstitute the Dartmouth Society of Engineers, and was active in the Student Assembly and Habitat for Humanity. An engineering sciences major modified with computer science, he was also a six-time teaching assistant in various computer engineering classes for Assistant Professor of Engineering Linda Wilson. As a graduate student in the master of engineering management program, he spent most of his time “in the lab or at Tuck,” but was also president of the Dartmouth Society of Engineers. He has worked as a consultant at the Monitor Group (now part of Deloitte) and is currently the senior director for strategic marketing at Arcadia Healthcare Solutions, a health care analytics and services firm outside of Boston. Greg lives in Holliston, Massachusetts, with his wife, Jennifer, 4-year-old son Liam, and 1-year-old son Aiden.

For Dartmouth: Greg has served on the Dartmouth Alumni Council, Dartmouth Society of Engineers, the MEM Corporate Collaboration Council, the Sigma Phi Epsilon Alumni Volunteer Corporation, and as a Class of 2001 officer. He has also hired well over a dozen Dartmouth graduates. 

Tip of the hat: “When I was a first-year student, newly a member of the Student Assembly, President Freedman announced his departure. Along with Josh Green ’00, Janelle Ruley ’00, and Senu 'Ku' Saret ’01, we created the 'Visions of Dartmouth' project to solicit letters from the entire student body for the to-be-named president of the College. After collecting over 3,000 letters, the four of us, presenting the student body’s vision, were the first meeting Jim Wright took after his inauguration.” 

You know you bleed Green when: “You still have an irrepressible urge to talk to any stranger in any airport who just happens to be wearing a Dartmouth T-shirt or hat, despite your wife’s incredulous head shaking.”
