QUANTUM MEDIA'S CHRISTINE ARRINGTON LED 13 UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ON ILLUMINATING BUSINESS VISITS IN LONDON

Earlier this year, Quantum Media Principal Christine Arrington led 13 Utah State University (her alma mater) students majoring in business to meetings in London. Sanjay Patel, who heads up Apollo’s entire European business, shared that Apollo recently concluded there is not sufficient “rule of law” in China, Russia, or Ukraine to justify making new investments there!  Just when the rush to invest in China was barely cooling down!
