Dr. Walter Meier Dr. Walter Meier, President & CEO. Dr. Walter Meier, born 1951, is the founder, CEO and conceptual driving force of the BT&T Group. Under his management, dedicated research and development work has created the BT&T Concept, the company's research infrastructure, the empirically based approach to investment management, as well as the highly qualified BT&T team. Dr. Meier is a specialist in strategic management and corporate finance. His particular strength and ability is in the application of concepts which distil complex relationships in economics, technology and business down to their most simple form and apply them to real life without losing any of their relevance. The experience that Dr. Meier has gathered in concept implementation at BT&T has resulted in the development of the empirical approach and empirically based investment management. With the methods and screening technology that have been developed, he has enabled concept implementation and investment decisions to be repeatable at any time via an investment process that resembles a scientific experiment – concept-based and independent of personality factors. After a technical apprenticeship and two years in the mechanical engineering industry, Dr. Meier returned to his studies, gaining a Masters in Economics and Business Administration from the University of St. Gallen, where he also earned his doctorate. The path that his career has taken to date has prepared him well for his present position: Starting in business consultancy, Dr. Meier moved on to the strategic planning staff of a technology group, then became profit centre head in the technical consumer goods segment and manager of a restructuring project for a global engineering company. Later he took on the overall management of a far-reaching strategy project at a major services group, founded and expanded a private equity investment company focusing on growth companies, developed and placed a financial product for the credit financing of eight Swiss cities and masterminded the takeover and strategic refocusing of a software company in the financial sector and the establishment and development of an integrated fund management system. The combined wealth of this experience led in 1994 to the foundation of BT&T and the company's operational start in 1995/96.

    Dr. Snyderman accepted his first faculty appointment at Duke in 1972 as a Howard Hughes Medical Investigator, assistant professor of medicine and immunology, and Chief of Rheumatology at the Durham Veteran's Administration Hospital. He rose rapidly through Duke's academic ranks, becoming chief of the Division of Rheumatology and Immunology in 1975. By 1984, Snyderman was also the Frederic M. Hanes Professor of Medicine and Immunology.

A year later, he was promoted to senior vice president. While at Genentech, he led the development and licensing of several novel therapeutics and supervised about 300 staff members working in pharmacology, clinical research and regulatory affairs.

    Since returning to Duke as Chancellor for Health Affairs and Dean of the School of Medicine, Dr. Snyderman has led the transition of this excellent medical center into an internationally recognized model for academic medicine. During his tenure, the medical school and hospital have been ranked amongst the nation's best. He moreover fostered major initiatives in clinical research, genetics and the neurosciences. A graduate of Washington College in Chestertown, Md. (1961), Snyderman received his M.D., magna cum laude, in 1965 from the Downstate Medical Center of the State University of New York.
