Meet Our Board Chair: Peter Mondani '75
Mondani, a member of the Class of 1975, has always stayed active, pursuing countless passions. He is a skier, a fisherman, a runner, and since his days at Xavier and later at Holy Cross, a competitive golfer. Whether running marathons (he has completed 10, including six Boston Marathons) or hitting the slopes at Jackson Hole, Mondani is never far from a challenge or afraid to take a risk when it comes to something he believes in. And Mondani has long believed in Xavier and everything it provides to students.
Inspired by his relationship as a student with Brother J. Robert Houlihan, C.F.X., Mondani has made mentorship a focus of his life.
“Whether it is time, talent or money, it is about helping others,” Mondani said.
His sense of service and giving back, came early in his Xavier days and never left. By his senior year he was president of MYARC, the club started Houlihan to help those with physical and mental difficulties.
“This was a great opportunity to provide service to others, and to help individuals who needed some help and support,” Mondani said. “Brother Houlihan was caring, selfless. He wanted to help others, and that’s what we did.”
Mondani spent about 38 years at General Electric, all of it in Human Resources, and in many of the GE businesses. About half his career at GE was in Corporate, where he was Vice President for Human Resources, supporting the Vice Chairman and CFO.
“It was all about building relationships, working with people, facilitating, communicating, helping talent grow, recruiting talent, helping processes to retain talent,” Mondani said.
Mondani and his wife Donna have been married for 40 years. They have two sons, who also attended Xavier: Mark '10 and PJ '06. Mondani graduated from the College of Holy with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and from Stevens Institute of Technology with a Master's Degree in Human Resources/Industrial Organization Psychology.
