Sternbach Lands Position At Credit Suisse


Hobart College senior forward Zach Sternbach has accepted a position at Credit Suisse as an Investment Banking Analyst in the Financial Institutions Group in New York City. As an analyst, he will create investor presentations and financial models to value companies, analyzing merger and acquisition deals and raising capital.
An economics major, Sternbach returns to Credit Suisse after spending the last two summers as an Investment Banking Summer Analyst.
A four–year member of the hockey team, Sternbach matched Hobart’s career record, playing in 114 games. He notched 87 points on 43 goals and 44 assists. A center on the Statesmen’s top line for three seasons, Sternbach finished in the top-five in scoring all four years.
A captain, Sternbach led the team with 24 points on 13 goals and 11 assists in 2019-20. He recorded a hat trick in Hobart’s 8-3 win at Castleton. Sternbach is a three-time NEHC All-Academic selection and was named an AHCA All-American Scholar and was inducted to the Druid Society.
Sternbach credits the skill set he learned as a member of the hockey team with preparing him for working in the business world at Credit Suisse.
“Many of the traits required to be a student-athlete here at the Colleges correspond directly to the skills needed to succeed in the workplace,” Sternbach said. “Teamwork, communication and time management are thee examples that immediately come to mind which are all critical to both school and work. Nearly everything I have done with Credit Suisse the past two summers and will continue to do was done in a team setting. Playing hockey prepared me in a way that I am convinced could not have been replicated without athletics.”
Sternbach is appreciative of the support he received from the Salisbury Center for Career, Professional and Experiential Education for making him aware of the opportunity. He is also grateful for the guidance of Craig R. Stine ’81, P’17, incoming Chair of the HWS Board of Trustees, with landing him his first internship. Stine is the Executive Vice Chairman at Credit Suisse.
“This opportunity would not have been possible for me without my time at HWS,” Sternbach said. “Mr. Stine was instrumental in me landing my first internship at Credit Suisse which led to the full-time job. The HWS career services staff prepared me for the recruitment process and our professors gave me the ability to succeed in the professional environment.”
Sternbach and his classmates compiled a four-year record of 79-24-14, four NCAA tournament bids and two conference titles. Their 79 wins are third most by a Hobart graduating class and their .735 winning percentage is also third highest. They were the only team in Division III to qualify for the NCAA tournament in all four years and extended Hobart’s streak to an NCAA Division III best six appearances.
