Gwen graduated in 1965, and did her graduate work in French Literature at New York University. Prior to becoming a broker, Gwen had a varied - but never dull - career!  She had planned to teach, but since New York City schools were on strike at the time, she instead went to work at Dun & Bradstreet, where she became a Credit Reporter, analyzing the upholstered furniture industry. From there she moved to Wall Street, working in research/arbitrage. Subsequently Gwen went to work for Mayor John Lindsay's administration, as Director of Tourism for the City of New York.  Together, they originated the ubiquitous street fairs that take over the city during the summer months. Then Gwen went into television news, as a producer and reporter; and subsequently she returned to Dun & Bradstreet for several years, and in 1981 began her current career in Finance.

Gwen serves on the Board of Trustees of the University of Rochester where she is Chairman of the Student Affairs Committee and chairs the Annual Fund for the entire University as well as the External Advisory Committee at Simon Business School. In late 2011 Gwen was honored with the naming of the Gwen M Greene Career and Internship Center, now affectionately known as the Greene Center.
