Gordon B. Hattersley, Jr. (1930-2002)

The Hattersley Society honors alumni and friends who have provided for Wharton’s future through life income, bequest, and other estate and planned gifts.

The Society is named for the late Gordon B. Hattersley, Jr. (1930-2002), who graduated from the Wharton MBA Program in 1954. Co-founder of UTI Corporation, Mr. Hattersley was closely involved in the life of Wharton. He served as a member of the Undergraduate Executive Board for many years, and as a member of the School’s Board of Overseers. His support of Wharton during his lifetime included decades of support of the Wharton Fund and gifts of financial aid for high school students attending the School’s Leadership in the Business World program. He helped Wharton build new, world-class teaching facilities with major gifts to name prominent spaces in the Steinberg Conference Center and in Jon M. Huntsman Hall, spaces named for his father, Gordon, Sr. W’24. Mr. Hattersley’s generous support of Wharton extended after his death. His unrestricted estate gift to the School is the largest such gift in the School’s history.
