Michael ('87) and Mary-Ann Maquet-Diafouka

Published April 29, 2015 in Friends

Michael Maquet is the Chief Executive Officer of W.P. Stewart & Co., Ltd. Prior to joining W.P. Stewart in June 2013, Mr. Maquet was Chief Executive Officer and President of Madison Square Investors, where he was responsible for oversight of all firm activities, including the portfolio management, investment research, product development, institutional sales, client services, operations and finance functions. A 1987 graduate of the College of Arts & Sciences, Maquet earned his degree in Economics and currently serves on the Jefferson Scholar Selection Committee for New York City. In 2013, Maquet and his wife, Mary-Ann, made a contribution to the Kenneth G. Elzinga Professorship in Economics and the Law, an endowed fund.

“I am a huge believer in the value of the Jeffersonian Principles of Education,” Maquet said. “I have seen how much they helped me form my future career and, more importantly, how they have impacted everyone who graduates from U.Va. The College’s endowment will play a key role in bringing the best faculty possible to our University, and I think that it is extraordinarily important for the College to continue upgrading our faculty every chance we get.”
