George Paulin

George Paulin

Chairman, CEO | Frederic West Cook & Co. | Class of 1973

George Paulin’s spot is the old Labor School lounge on Armory Avenue, where at any given time in the early ’70s, one could find a mix of faculty and students talking politics, sports, the news of the day or the curriculum. 

It’s where Paulin (’73) went from “intimidated-quiet in my first semester, to cautious participation, to coming prepared to defend my opinions” and, ultimately, to future CEO of a Los Angeles-based consulting firm and distinguished alumni award winner. 

“I hope there are still places like it around the campus. What I learned there has served me as well as what I learned in my classes.”
