It’s clear that the men of the Sigma Chapter of Zeta Psi are a special group. The accomplishments just keep coming for our alumni. Two of them, Marc Ganzi '93 and Mark Waters '86, were featured in the last two issues of Penn's Alumni publication: The Pennsylvania Gazette.

Marc Ganzi ’93 was recognized for his unique passion for polo. Though he has successfully launched and led at least six companies over the years, he found his true calling when a friend introduced him and his wife Melissa Potamkin Ganzi C’91 to the sport.

 

As The Pennsylvania Gazette reports, “Before long they were getting invitations to play alongside British royals Prince William and Prince Harry, captain Team USA, and compete in the most prestigious tournaments around the globe. They also started two of the largest and most renowned polo clubs in the United States: the Aspen Valley Polo Club and the Grand Champions Polo Club in Wellington, Florida.”

Mark Waters ’86 was featured for taking a new direction in his career. Known for directing movies like Mean Girls, Freaky Friday, and The Spiderwick Chronicles, no one expected him to take on Bad Santa 2.

 

As The Pennsylvania Gazette reported, this was “his first chance to show audiences and studio execs that he can make funny movies for adults. It’s the first raunchy, R-rated comedy he’s ever done.”
