    Reed Krakoff (A86) is the former creative director of Coach, Inc., and founder of his namesake brand Reed Krakoff.

    The Lyon & Bendheim Alumni Lecture Series at Tufts was established by JB Lyon, A85, and Tom Bendheim, A85. Alumni lecturers are chosen because they are leaders who have repeatedly proven themselves with tremendous achievements at the highest levels in their respective fields. Tom Bendheim explained that, "Our goal for starting the lecture series was to bring prominent and successful alumni to campus to share their wisdom and experience with the students. The students benefit, the alumni feel good about being asked and about speaking, and Tufts ultimately benefits in terms of alumni support and overall exposure as a school that breeds highly successful professionals in all fields.
