Paul Nussbaum

“I benefited from the CC Furnas Emergency Student Loans as an undergraduate and it truly is a pleasure to help others pursue their dreams.”

Paul Nussbaum, BA ‘67, said he practices an old UB motto: “Let each become all he is capable of being.” As CEO, he took Patriot American Hospitality—owner of Wyndham and other major hotel brands—from one hotel in 1992 to being the fourth largest U.S. hospitality company. As a member of UB's Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity, he and others established the AEII Student Assistance Fund to provide emergency financial relief to deserving students.
