Mary E. Cyrier, BUS AD '84

From an early age, Mary Cyrier was taught by her parents the importance of serving others. It's a lesson that Mary clearly has taken to heart. When she isn't working as vice president for human resources at Schwarz Pharma, an international pharmaceutical business, Mary volunteers her time extensively.

Marquette and its College of Business Administration benefit in a particular way from Mary's selfless service. She was a member of the college's Alumni Association Board from 1997–2005 and served as its president from 2003–2004. She currently is co-chair of the association's governance committee and continues to serve on the human resources and international business advisory board. She's shared her talents and time on a number of university-wide initiatives too, including the Association of Marquette University Women, Alpha Sigma Nu, the reunion committee, Supper for 12 Strangers and University Ministry.

Mary's affection for her alma mater clearly runs deep. She says that equally as critical as the technical skills she mastered at Marquette was the university's insistence on ethics — another lesson that has stayed with her for a lifetime. "I am always striving for success but making sure that I am acting with integrity is the most important," she says.
