Announcement and Holiday Greeting 2015


This time of year is wonderful as we exchange season’s greetings with so many from near and far. Looking back over this year, I am proud to reflect on the many ways in which The Bertram Group is continuing to grow and further enhance our offerings.

Highlights of our year included:

Deena Maerowitz became a full partner, signifying the importance of her work with college and graduate-level candidates. Deena is a well-published voice and sought-after speaker relating to navigating the college admission process. Her work with Bertram candidates as a professional affiliate for the past three years, serving a broad range of learning profiles, has shown her to be truly gifted at helping young adults pursue the path to higher education with focus and purpose.

James and Kathryn Meyer of Park City, Utah, joined The Bertram Group as professional affiliates. The Meyers bring specialized expertise with therapeutic programs, more than half of which in the U.S. are located in the western mountain region. The couple also brings strong experience with traditional boarding schools throughout the country.

Bertram Group affiliate Frank Schroeder, founder of Campus2Career, has opened an office in New York, in addition to the original location of Chicago. Campus2Career helps adults in their 20's find not just jobs, but the right job on a career path, providing a transition to life after a student’s educational journey.

Longstanding Bertram partners Audrey Noyes Ludemann and Holly McGlennon Treat continue to use their supreme professionalism, thoughtfulness and warmth to work with families seeking placements at traditional junior and secondary boarding schools, as well as day schools. Meanwhile, partner Jeremy McGeorge continues to help families with struggling students find opportunities for success at therapeutic schools and programs.

We also want to recognize the wonderful work of professional affiliates Linda Magnussen, Kristen Naspo, and Lisa Schwartz as they serve client families here and abroad. And we acknowledge the efforts of Henry Bertram as our Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director.

The close of each calendar year finds each family in a different phase in their educational planning. Some are winding down school searches, while others are just beginning to make plans that will come to fruition next year. As always, at the Bertram Group, we look forward to hearing from you to discuss the next step in your child’s journey.

We are ever grateful to the families of our Bertram candidates for placing their confidence in us to navigate the plethora of educational opportunities. We hold this trust very dear and will continue to serve you with the utmost integrity and professionalism. It is a true blessing to do work that makes a difference in the lives of so many students and their families.

Best wishes to you and yours,
Cammie Bertram
