Arie Hariton

Warrington Business Ethics Ambassador selected for the UF Hall of Fame

GAINESVILLE, Fla. –  Warrington College of Business student and Business Ethics Ambassador Arie Hariton was selected for the University of Florida Hall of Fame.

Since 1921, the UF Hall of Fame has recognized seniors and graduate students who have consistently demonstrated an outstanding commitment to improving the University of Florida through campus and community involvement, participation in organized campus activities and scholastic achievement. It is one of the most prestigious honors awarded to students by the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Florida.

“Being able to celebrate the end of my college career with my induction into the Hall of Fame is incredibly special to me,” Hariton said. “In the last four years, I’ve been able to use my skills and experiences to invest in people and organizations at UF, and I am deeply grateful to the University for all it has given me.

“My experiences through the Business Ethics Ambassadors (BEA) and the Poe Center were incredibly pivotal in helping me find success at UF and in my professional career. Being a Business Ethics Ambassador was one of the first things I did at UF, and I’ve been a BEA for three years. Learning how to be an ethical and constructive leader helped set the groundwork for a lot of the work I’ve been able to do on campus. Also, ethical leadership is one of the hardest factors to identify for recruiters and having it on my resume helped me stand out and build towards my future.”

Hariton (BSBA-Finance ’17, MIB ’18) has served as Fundraising Overall Director for Dance Marathon at the University of Florida, leading the program to the largest fundraising push day and in-event fundraising in the history of Miracle Network Dance Marathons. He also served as chapter president of his fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha, as a Mentor and Advisory Board Member for the Florida Leadership Academy, as a Career and Academic Peer Mentor, as a Reitz Scholar and is a member of Florida Blue Key.

“Arie is one of the most capable young people I have worked with during my career in higher education,” said Dr. Brian Ray, Director of the Poe Business Ethics Center and Lecturer of Leadership and Ethics. “He has used his intellectual abilities and interpersonal skills to impact areas across the University of Florida as well as the Gator Nation. Arie’s accomplishments, coupled with his passion for this university, make him the ideal candidate for induction in the UF Hall of Fame. What a tremendous source of pride for the Business Ethics Ambassadors to have one of its own selected for this prestigious honor!”

Hariton will graduate with his Master of International Business in the spring of 2018 and will start working at Wells Fargo Securities in technology investment banking in June.
