Our Great Deerfield Alumni Network

We’re toasting our glasses of wine together thanking our lucky fortune to have attended Deerfield together and maintained such a strong bond. Deerfield really is the gift that keeps on giving,” wrote Andy Ling ’77 who founded ZipRemit, Inc. (www.zipremit.com) which provides merchant-branded consumer finance and will soon be trading publicly. “We provide a SaaS micro-lending solution for merchants to offer as an alternative credit facility for their customers, save them significantly on interchange fees and ensure that the merchant retains their customer and not lose them to third-party credit card and payment companies. The mobile payments industry is rapidly growing and we’re riding the wave.”

Deerfield classmates joining the ZipRemit team include early investor, Bill Barry ’77, advisory board members Tom Mallory ’77 and Jamie MacPherson ’77 and Townley Paton ’77 who is the company’s Chief Marketing Officer.

Here’s a pic of some of the Deerfield ZipRemit team and our CFO at St. Francis Winery in Sonoma a few weeks ago. What fun to be working with some of my Deerfield buddies.” (L to R, Townley Paton ’77, Andy Ling ’77, Gary Pryor and Tom Mallory ’77)

Frequently Asked Questions

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement. 

Of course! Be sure to read the latest issue of From Albany Road in your email’s in-box for current news of what is happening on campus.
